May 27 Visit to Cienfuegos refinery. Dylan, Rogelio and his local guy Hennessy visited the Cienfuegos refinery where they also had been using our equipment full time since 2008 in their API separators to remove surface oil and return it back into the refinery system. We met the teams for the ...
... fish both grilled and deep fried, french fries and tomato, onion and many other delicacies. Manolo would always have a very cold "Bucanero" beer for me (best in Cuba but hard to get sometimes). We would share some Havana 7 year rum and cigars with him and we would sit and play dominoes in the heat of the evening.

This casa is a lot more like a hotel or b&b with at least six rooms and a bar and restarant area. I have a double bed, fridge, en suite, and air con. It feels like I'm flashpacking which is a nice way to round off my trip. I was thinking (money allowing) I may really swank it up on ...
