... and we decided the best thing to do would be get an extra night there on Friday, as we wouldn't need any money. We had some American dollars and euros we were keeping for emergencies and exchanged them (for a huge fee! But we were desperate!). We went to all the local travel agents to book the hotel-and were met with "no not tonight, the phone lines are down..." As if it was the most natural thing in the world. That is the thing with Cuba, things we take ...

Concrete, utilitarian style blocks painted ravishing colours like sunshine yellow, blood red and ocean blue. Most have that ‘closed-for-summer’ look where the only thing on the menu would be ‘radishes’. They’re kind of frightening to look at and it chills ...

Although I have no regrets at all in the island tour overthe last three weeks I was so looking forward to this five day break away from the 'peso bandits'. This part of the break was about complete relaxation, minimal responsibility, even less need to organise anything and total escapism.

This kind of place is very accessible to many westerners but way out of the price ...
