Che’s biker mate dies

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

AL­BERTO Granado, who ac­com­pa­nied Ernesto ’ Che’ Gue­vara on a 1952 jour­ney of dis­cov­ery across Latin Amer­ica that was im­mor­talised in Gue­vara’s mem­oir and on-screen in The Mo­tor­cy­cle Diaries, has died in Cuba. He was 88 and died of nat­u­ral causes on Satur­day. The pair’s road trip, awoke in Gue­vara a so­cial con­scious­ness and po­lit­i­cal con­vic­tions that would help turn him into one of the most iconic rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies of the 20th cen­tury.
