With only a few minutes left on my internet terminal, I wanted to share some of our observations from our trip so far...
There is no advertising in Cuba, save for billboards and murals celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Revolucion.
Very few people have cell phones, which in a group of people at a bus stop makes for the unfamiliar sight of everyone with their heads up, looking around instead of down.
Yank tanks abound, as do soviet-era cars and few new vehicles here and there.
Temperatures vary delightfully between the 60s at night and high 70s in the day, significantly lower than usual for this time of year, due to El Nino.
Our guide, Ludwig, can answer any question you ask him about Cuba. From identifying random structures in the skyline to answering probing questions about la raza de Cuba, he is an invaluable member of our trip, as is our expert bus driver who carefully avoids brave pedestrians, stray dogs, and narrow streets.
Oops! three minutes left to post--we'll try to put more up tomorrow!
