Cuba was luuuvely! We have a nice tan (I think I’ll go to the pool next week!), we’ve seen a fair amount of Cuba (this is the 15th biggest island, and it’s f*ck1n9 long), food wasn’t great, rum was cheap and obviously drunk in vast amounts (maybe I shouldn’t go to the pool… vanity is such a weird thing!), bloody chÃ© was omnipresent (as was josÃ© marti) despite being a real troublemaker throughout latin america and africa, fabulous music, no service mentality at all in hotels and bars although people in the street are eager to help (just to show us how much they love their state-regulated jobs), beautiful beaches, seen 5 world heritage sites (Trinidad village, Valle de los Ingenios, Vinales, Havana Vieja and Cienfuegos), learned a lot about how people cunningly circumvent the dictatorship and lack of freedom on a regular basis,… too much to tell.
I have just downloaded my 500 pictures to the computer, now starts the heavy task of deleting some, uploading a deal to flickr. 2moro we’re getting back to the (old) job (although my account seems to be blocked already ;-), yeah!) while waiting for the new one that starts on December 4th.
