We ended our stay in Varadero by taking a arranged dive excursion to the bay of pigs where we attended to stay after the two dives and continue east to either Playa Giron or further.
The dive here offered walls of corals and many exotic fishes and a small wreck.
We are so lucky. Just after the dives a bus heading to Trinidad passed by and we hoped on and went all the way.
... a nice way to spend my last night in Santa Clara.
Friday 28th March. The ride to Havanna was surprisingly swift in a car with 3 other women and a driver. Very reliably I was collected at 10am and with broken Spanish chatted to the ladies in the car all Cubans. Seems this is an alternative way to get rides other than pay bus fares.

Taken to house in historical centre, very Spanish, ...

... Take a look at the pictures I am sending you. Alan, the bird guy, will think it is especially wonderful. Wish you guys were here!
After our bird walk we wandered around the area and discovered the other side of town (only two blocks away). I am sure we chose wisely to stay here because the beach over on this side is wide and beautiful and the other side of town looks out onto dark and turbid waters. Quite a difference.
So happy we visited ...
