... ranges. I need to remember to sit on the opposite side of the bus for the trip back.
Entering Baracoa it looks like a bit of a concrete dump. Large run down apartment blocks greeted us. At the depot I was snagged by a lady. She won it as she had the price of $15 on her sign.

... flights a week to Baracoa (on Sundays and Thursdays), but they are quite often delayed and/or cancelled with little to no notice. (We experienced this 1st hand as our British travel companion's flight was cancelled, preventing him from meeting us at the Holguín airport and requiring him to take a taxi to Baracoa.
