Amid "Viva Fidel!" chants, a convoy escorting former Cuban president Fidel Castro's ashes began its journey across Cuba this Wednesday. The four-day trip will end in Santiago de Cuba, where his funeral will be held Sunday. The revolutionary leader who brought communism to his island nation in 1959 died Nov. 25 at the age 90 years old. As the world watches Cuba's next moves, Link TV revisits some of the cultural, economic, and political stories that have shaped the country through the Castro era.
