Changing Cuba: Inside the country's first curry house

In Havana, a British man and his Cuban wife have opened the Caribbean island's first curry house - and like all privately-owned restaurants, it is run inside the family home.

The family have taken advantage of the opportunities created as the Communist government slowly opens up Cuba's state-controlled economy.

The regime says the increasing amount of limited private enterprise is crucial in helping sustain Cuba's socialist system, and there are now 1618 private restaurants - or paladars - across the country.
