Half an hour late for the tour as Romey had given me the wrong time, but luckily they were just about to give up on me when I arrived. Nice little group - a lovely English couple called Rob and Cherie from Bristol, our tiny tour guide, and a trainee who was tagging ...
... our last night in Cuba. It was a nice 'rest' day after so much activity during the past two weeks.
