The baggage handlers were another worry. At the country's biggest airport, JosÉ MartÍ, luggage locks are picked and the contents pilfered with impressive speed. A friend of mine gratefully discovered his thieving handler was a person of modest needs: he passed up the silk ties and Gucci shoes and stole a couple of ?Golf Or Die? T-shirts. I remember a British traveller saying he was on an aircraft waiting to depart when he noticed a handler grab a suitcase off a cart near a 747, run across the tarmac and throw it over a wall. But that was Havana and I was flying into HolguÍn, a small and hopefully less criminally inclined city near the east coast.
