Ohhhhhhh… such a wonderful, wonderful, WONDERFUL time we had!!
I had been wanting to go to Cuba for some time now and the opportunity arose very last minute and we jumped!
Cuba is everything you’d think it would be: vibrant, colourful, a total throwback with the old cars, the architecture, cobblestone streets and a remarkable –refreshing! – lack of neon and billboard advertising. It makes for great pictures – pretty easy pickings for the travel photography!
As much as I love a Caribbean beach, Havana was truly the highlight. Between the endless bike taxi touring, the hand-made leather finds and just hanging out sipping cocktails, listening to salsa music and people watching, I would go back in a second!
There’s so much more to see and experience in this city that seems to have stopped in time. Internet is sketchy and the food isn’t much to write home about, but the energy of the place makes even a total introverted home-body like myself want to roam all day and well into the night – even learn to salsa!
