... me with a big smile and a hug. It’s like I’m staying with family, it’s really nice.

My room wasn’t quite ready yet so Elina had me wait in her house which is just upstairs and I sat with her mother. Her mom is this little old Cuban lady who doesn’t speak any english at all, but she was so nice! We sat in her living room for about ten minutes while Elina finished my room and we had a full blown conversation ...

Touring Cuba

We arrived in Havana a couple of days before the tour started so were able to have a good look around and get a feel for the place.

The reception area has a very fine collection of grandfather clocks which chime on the quarter hour, but not all at the ...

Saw some just sights including where Fidel Castro used to make his speeches, the first Catholic Church in Havana and where Ernest Hemingway used to drink. Met two great people at my casa. Kyle from Wales and Shelly from ...

My first thoughts of Havana city were, "oh my God, what have we gotten ourselves into". It is like someone took a majestic old city, crumpled it up and threw it away. I have no other way that I can think of to describe it. It reminded me of Dara salaam but worse. Great mansions stood crumbling and abandoned, holes in walls, rubble in the streets, people hanging out on the rubble and in darkened doorways. Old, busted and poor. We have no where ...
