Too many photos for one entry .. Cuba continued ...
Headed east for a festival in Santiago de Cuba. Music on the streets and in cafes.
Went 10km out of town in a yellow coco taxi (yet another wierd mode of transport) to Castillo San Pedro del Morro, an old fort built in the 1600's with a moat and cannons built on a cliff on the coast with amazing views and a lighthouse.
Travelled further east through some beautiful mountain ...
Back in Santiago (this time with Dave) we headed to the historic centre where I ran into a taxi driver who I had previously used and had a 1930 ford. Yes that's the right year.

Guy who gave me the ride seemed friendly enough and along the way we had a few local kids help push the rickshaw up one of the little hills and then jump onto the back as we started to go down another part. Driver was commenting to me how he use to do the same thing when he was a kid.
Day 1 - Plazas, Museo Emilio Barcardi, Streets, Parque Alameda, Padre Pico Steps
Interesting bus ride to Santiago de Cuba with a few interesting towns passed along the way. Ended up at the local Visual bus terminal where I got picked up and once again overcharge by the taxi driver taking me to the casa.
Decided once again to only have breakfast and not have a dinner at the casa. At this point the guy offered to possibly give me dinner for 4 rather than 5 CUC but ...
