... up on the bar waiting for the tourists to arrive. The guy at the bar offered me a cigar from a tray - I bought the cheapest ($4CUC), got the money shot for my Havana challenge and gave the cigar to the barman to smoke.

I couldn't help but feel slightly guilty. I have a strong feeling we will only be seeing the shiny parts of Cuba.

So they probably had no idea I was coming, which made them a bit nervous. Furthermore I had travelled via the United States, and was going back to the United States after my Cuba visit. This probably wouldn’t have alarmed the Cuban authorities if there had not been a group of “Anti-US-Sanction” activists on my ...
