Transcript for Cubans and Cuban-Americans React to Castro's Death With Tears, Smiles
in Cuba, the tale of two very different images. Tonight, a country in mourning. The streets of Havana, still filled with those vintage cars. And inside this one, we meet a family saddened. We ask what they think of a Cuba without Castro. Inside that car, nothing but silence. And then, this. Reporter: The man tells us Cuba without Castro is nothing. A nation, numb, after living nearly 50 years under Castro's rule. At Havana university, the young people, chanting "Fidel." All: Fidel! Reporter: Cuba, just 90 miles away from Florida. And in the U.S., a much different scene. In little Havana, many of the Cuban Americans who escaped Castro, or whose parents or grandparents did, are now relieved. And for so many, now hope for a better relationship with Cuba, without Fidel Castro. Thank you for watching here from Cuba on a Sunday night. I hope to see you right here tomorrow night. Good night.
