... last airport! And it is true what the guide books say - the female Immigration officers do wear fishnet stockings with their uniform! (And they are hot, literally and figuratively - PK) As the others have mentioned, it is hot and at times I have felt like I was melting. We visited a kids playground today which paled in comparison to what we are used to, and we had to pay to get in and then pay for some of the rides. Pete kept ...

Pass The Cigars

Cuba was a big deal for us while were in this part of the world. At some point soon I would expect that the long-standing dispute between Cuba and the U.S. will end, not with a bang but a whimper, and Americans will pour in here and, as they are prone to do, rearrange the furniture in a very dramatic way.

A travel blog entry by davenpod


... sup> International Havana Jazz Festival. Chuco Valdes, a festival founder and beloved jazz musician, was the main act. The music was so good I was moved to tears at one point.
