    ... All of the Cuban places (where the Cubans eat) seem to have very similar menus. Pizza, spaghetti, sandwiches and burgers. I expected to see more “caribbean” food, but I haven’t seen much of that expect for at expensive hotels. I’m guessing that kind of food is more for the tourists than for the locals.

    I checked out a couple small parks and saw lots of locals hanging out in any shade ...

    ... of dances associated with the faith. These dances involve brightly colored, flowing silk dresses. The movements are very graceful, and since the dances are all interpretive, they also demonstrate the beliefs of Santeria very well. It was a fun way to learn about Santeria, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Just keep in mind - if you sit in the front row, you will be invited up to join in the fun.

    Well we are on tour now with the designated time 8am and place for the group meeting and briefing before our city tour! Unfortunately there are no stereotypes. A great bunch of people and I think we are going to have a very pleasant time. We are the only ones doing three weeks so will have a new set of people joining us in a couple of weeks. Our city tour was so good. Old Havana has such a different feel to the central Havana we saw yesterday. It has 4 plazas and high ...

    ... Daiquiris. In the Revolutionary museum we learned interesting facts about the incredible history of Cuba. And of course we also paid a visit to the 'Havana Club' museum of rum, where we were given some interesting information and an even better tasting ;-).

    As any first-time visitor we soon realized that Cuba is truly unique. Shaped by its people, history and socialism, the country is somehow defying all logic. Times such as the Spanish colonialism, slavery, war ...
