... and went to change my money. Twice, because, obviously I needed my passport and obviosuly I don't carry it around with me. The rates were about the same as in the airport which means I'm already down US$48 (£32). Since ATM's are such a wildcard and Cuban currency isn't available outside I guess this is another Gringo Tax. I'm sure I'll loose the same again on whatever money I have left when leaving the country. I could've figured out how much I saved/lost by using Canadian ...

We are chilling by the hotel pool this pm - mojitos/ Cristal cervezas! The Holland/Costa Rica game has just finished. I have got a nice cohiba to smoke (or ...
... poorly lit up they all were giving everything a yellow hazey glow. We arrived at our restaurant along the Malicon and the strangest thing happened, the waiters came out to the taxi to open the door and greet us. How lovely I thought!
