Went on a bike ride today and got to see a bit of authentic Cuba. The first discovery I made was a group of vultures... yes, vultures which live just outside the hotel complexes. It doesn't take long to leave the fairy tale world of the hotel and see the way people live. There is a small, 1970's communitst style villlage just nearby. It's quite a contrast to the hotel!. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the 'real Cuba.'
There is a routine here, (I can say that even though I have only been here, two days,) The mornings are hot and humid, so you lie around the pool and drink, Margarittas or other cocktails, the sun continues to beat down in the afternoon, and then the black clouds assemble and before you know it there is a tremendous thunderstorm. It beats the north east winds of Scotland any day.
Tomorrow, I'm off on a cattamaran, we are  going off to an island to do a bit of snorkelling...


  1. Sounds fabulous Ray. Have a great time. Cuba sounds such an interesting country. Brian

  2. I'm very jealous! Hope the snorkelling's good.

  3. Thanks guys,
    I will be writing some more about Cuba
