We're leaving tomorrow...well, Thursday morning at 2 a.m. to be precise.  It seems very little has changed from our state of planning since the last time I blogged - just more time has passed! The only thing that has changed is that we have a hotel booked for the first and second night in Havana.  We're staying at a casa called Chez Nous - it's in the rough guide, and the price we were quoted was 30CUC per night.  I think it works out to about 27 dollars (Cdn) or so, but I'll figure that out a bit more closely tomorrow! Oh wait, we're running out of time, so I should probably do that now. haha. 

Anyway, Ross is currently finishing his last shift, and I'm finishing the last bit of trip purchases.  We opted to get him a travel towel because he didn't have one, and we weren't sure if the Casas would all be providing them.  Another unknown.  Other than that, we didn't have to buy much for this trip - we have most of the stuff from my previous trips, plus Ross has a good couple of packs.  We've decided to bring our two 40-45L packs - it's what I did most of my central & south America travels with, and it worked fine.  We might have a bit more space than we need, but that should be okay, especially since we won't be humping them around THAT much. (Hopefully) 

Our plans have changed a little - still a couple of days in Havana to start, but then we'll likely be heading down to Trinidad and spending some time at the beach, then a couple of days in Santiago, then back to Havana - hopefully with time for one more beach day in there.  When I say beach day, I really mean beach hours because we're both so pale we'll burn so badly - not something I really want the week before the wedding! haha. 

Anyway, I'll try to keep this updated as we go, but will definitely not be uploading photos yet - that'll have to wait until we get back.  :)
