... are just...hard. It is illegal to have internet in your home, unless you rent your room to tourists even at that it is heavily regulated and scrutinised. To use the internet in Varadero, we went to the communications building in town. A small office, with a security guard and huge queue as if it was some covert operation. It was as slow as dial up and very expensive! Tony tried to call home to sort out the bank card and was on hold twice for 4 minute before ...
... about 5 adults on it; they must have ordered 50-60 serves of ice cream and were shovelling it into large plastic containers they brought themselves!

So he took us to hotel safely and left us, we got to our room and prepared for tomorrow trip to Havana.
