This chapter, by way of epilogue, evokes the author's return to his hometown forty-two years after he left it. It observes that although many things have changed, many remain. The author confronts wildly different reactions when he visits former family homes and encounters the new occupants. The derelict condition of cities is notable. A visit to the old Liceo Club highlights the dramatic differences between the old and new Cubas.
