Back at the casa particular, we sat down to write the list of birds and Yamilin, our host, brought a carafe of pineapple juice. Unfortunately, we had to pack up and move down the road as she had reservations, but we were happy to find ourselves just one km away at ...
... Habana (where our Casa is) to go to the Museo de la Revolucion (Museum of the Revolution) which really sucked as 90% of it was closed and under construction but they didn't tell us that until after we bought our ticket. Then Charles and I went to Hotel Parque Central (bougiest and most expensive Hotel in Cuba but still only $200/night for 5 star treatment) to check out their skyline view and rooftop pool. Then we ...
