CBS News in Cuba

CBS News Anchor Dan Rather strikes a pose with Cuban President Fidel Castro deep in the majestic Sierra Maestra mountains where Castro lived as a guerrilla Cuban soldiers check out the Jimmy Jib camera crane during the security check (Photo by Gregory Andracke) Setting up at the Bay of Pigs, it's a beautiful palatial beach resort with the added character of cement gun emplacements (Photo by Gregory Andracke)
George Schak was my jib tech and assistant for the trip One of the other crews based in Miami gave us a fantastic tour of Havana, here George enjoys a Cuban cigar after an incredible lunch at a paladar - a restaurant in a private home

The trip of a lifetime....  CBS News hired me to join 4 other ENG crews to spend a week in Cuba with Dan Rather traveling the country with our host President Fidel Castro.

Among the places we visited outside of Havana were the Sierra Maestro Mountains were Fidel was a guerrilla, and the Bay of Pigs which even today is still a palatial beach resort.   Fidel's security staff were intrigued by the Jimmy Jib technology and a few were even considering it as a career after leaving the military!
