*Itinerary*

Part I

Nine Days in Havana Vieja, visits to Regla, Vedado, Miramar, West Havana, Hotel Nacional, Riviera, Revolution Square, strolls on the Prado and the  Malecon. Hemingway lore and visit to the homestead. Buena Vista player sightings on the veranda at the Hotel Ingleterra.

Marcos, Yuleydis, Yunelis, Mimi, so many Brothers, and Sisters, Aunties…. Man… and of course Cool Papa was sighted everywhere…La Habana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Camaguey, y Santiago, en todo pais, yo miro mi familia!

Part II

Riding in a Turbo Volvo Bus Coach we embarked on a Eight Day Road Trip, south by south east through the Cuban countryside, we learned a lot about how to successfully share the road. Traveling from Havana to Santiago included overnight visits, to UNESCO World Heritage sites in Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Camaguey, y Santiago de Cuba.  As well we stopped in El Cobre , Bayamo and of course “the Oasis”, along the way.

Every where we went we were greeted by the knowledgable and gracious Cuban people. They are about it ’bout it.  Working together, pedestrians, horse and cart, bicycles, motor bikes, American cars,  Latta, transport vehicles and the super turbo Volvo Bus.

SHARING THE ROAD

Totally a lesson to be learned.

More pictures to come.
