I'd packed and arranged my bags so we could leave some of our unneeded stuff in the airport lockers. A master plan to avoid lugging everything through Cuba. We approached ...
... we had less than 90 minutes to take off. Pushing to the front moved us to an immigration office where we were put into a waiting room - finally we found one immigration girl who understood the problem and took us to the front of the Mexican immigration queue - 75 minutes to go.
Finally we get to custonms and load our four bags and two small day packs into the xray machine - question "what do you have in THIS bag" answer "cigars" - go to that lady for bagage inspection - 65 ...
... with a couple of Cubans. I ended up going with them to a local dive bar, which ended up being a bad decision as the bar charged me an outrageous amount for the drinks because I'm a tourist I'm sure but I def got taken. Oh well, that happens. Left and went back to the apartment and fell asleep pronto. I had a great time in Cuba and learned and experienced a lot but I was looking forward to getting back to the States. Hasta Luego Cuba! ...
