    Back to the Capital

    ... my loses.

    Instead I re-traced my steps and continued onwards to the old town. There were a few bars but not much music. There are several plazas and not one central one, so there doesn't seem to be a focused area as such for nightlife. I've managed to see quite a bit of old town just wandering. So much for saving it for tomorrow! Most of it is pedestrianized and they've managed to re-use old cannons as bollards which is a pretty neat idea. They must have had a lot ...

    ... He started with the original music of the Cuban natives, who inhabited the island before the Spaniards came along. We aren't sure what they sounded like, because unfortunately every last one of them either died or was sold into slavery. Right away, we lost a valuable source of music and historical culture.

I am now a "regatoner" with my booty shaking on par with that of Beyoncé meaning I will definitely be downloading some regaton music once I get back ...

    ... room, sat there for a half hour, and then got moved back onto the same plane. They never checked our passports or anything, so it was a bit strange.

    We got on the plan and then took off for Havana. It was only an hour flight so we didn’t get as high as we would normally fly. We hit a little bit of turbulence and at one point did that thing where the whole plane drops for a second and your stomach is in your throat. Maybe it’s just ...

    ... until 8pm. We said we would enquire quickly to see if they had any suitable car for us. Jackpot- they did indeed! After a bit of admin work, it was all sorted and we were free to hit the road tomorrow.

    Now time for dinner. We ventured for two different paella dishes this time. Both were tasty. We discussed our plan for the next few days over dinner. Once we were full, we headed home as we would be on the road early to Santa Clara tomorrow.
