... something that will keep me fueled for very long, but it was better than nothing.


We all piled onto the coach bus at the hotel and got to the airport for about 5:15am. Getting through security was a breeze and got to the gate with tons of time. Everyone seemed pretty antsy about the flight. I don’t know if it’s because they just want to get there after the delays, or if they aren’t used to flying, or maybe they found out ...

... to the famous huge Jose Marti monument that is right in front of Plaza de la Revolucion and the famous Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos murals. The monument was very impressive although we were so tired from walking that we didn't hang out there long. We hit up a "university student cafe" afterwards for some aqua but there service sucked so much that we left what we owed and left. Then we went to a vegetarian restaurant and haggled ...
