Cuba – first impressions

25 Sep

Old American cars from the 50s and 60s that should have dies ages ago.  Ladas and strange tuk tuk taxis

 Institutionalised hitchhiking

 Beautiful crumbling buildings that should be abandoned – but aren’t

 Everyone in the street watching TV, playing football, chatting

 More rainstorms and thunder

 Walks on the beach – lovers, families and fishermen

 And yet a warmth and a vibrant energy….

    Hi there, Mr H!
    I’ve wanted to visit Cuba ever since studying its history at A Level…yes, years and years ago, and I still haven’t made it over there yet!!… Batista, Che Guevarra, Fidel… I still remember doing an essay on whether Cuba played the role of Russia’s political pawn!

    Have heard so many people say what a vibrant country it is, despite its problems. Will be fascinating to hear what you make of it there :o)

    Take care
