Cuban holiday

I am so excited to finally share with you a few pictures from our magnificent Cuban holiday. Because we didn’t plan this through very well and we kind of did everything last minute, we didn’t manage to book a holiday in Havana since nearly everything there was already booked, so we decided to go to Holguin area.

As I am sure you all know that Cuba is one of the few communist countries left in the world, I strongly believe that things will change soon para los Cubanos. Maybe the embargo will be lifted and they will have access to outside technology and all other things that we take for granted every day.

We took a ride from our resort to the city centre of Holguin (the 3rd biggest city in Cuba) in an old American Chevrolet 50. Thank God, it had air conditioning otherwise I would be a baked human now :)). The city was hot and dusty, the unbearable heat made everyone feel powerless. The Cubans are nice people and we didn’t feel unsafe for a second. The streets are narrow and everywhere you look you see old-school Buicks, Pontiacs and Ford cars, colourful town houses and Spanish colonial buildings. After strolling around the city and doing a bit of shopping in a local market we decided it was time to have a Cuban coffee and try one of their well known cigars.

Travelling to Cuba was like travelling back in time, the roads are like a rolling car museum, the colonial houses are even older than the cars and you can hear cha-cha music everywhere. My advice to you: Step back in time before it’s too late!DSC_0084 DSC_0110 DSC_0139 DSC_0162 DSC_0174 DSC_0198 DSC_0215 File 20-06-2016, 19 15 56 File 20-06-2016, 19 21 38
