Cuban can only make 20cuc a month in average which is around USD20. A can of Cuban cola and a hamburger cost me 2cuc. And I’m already eating very simple and local (obviously too fancy if I was a local).
Completely disconnected from the world for 5 days was not bad at all. Refreshing and less stressful. Totally understand why Cuban always have smile on their faces. (Took me awhile to take this pic hahaha)
Cuba makes me really appreciate what I have. Talked with some people. Some would die just to leave this country. But some came all the way from Ukraine because it’s more stable and the Cuban government provides free education and health care.
Apart from the black smoke and garbage smell, Cuba is an amazing place to visit. Got free ride from the airport to Airbnb. People were super nice and helpful. I’d say it’s safe to walk alone on the streets. Not like Bangkok and not a lot of scams.
Joining a bike tour was the best decision I made in this trip and biking in Havana really gives you a sense of where everything is. Met this cute couple from Netherlands. Spent an amazing afternoon together drinking and eating. Great people great food great alcohol. Couldn’t be better.
this city gives me a feeling of abandon and filthy. Being here on the street makes me suffocate because of the black smoke from cars as well as the smell of the garbage. Just imagine what was the life like here in the 50s, and their lungs...
It was a bad beginning on the first day in Cuba. Everything was closed. Couldn’t get my money exchanged. So went to bed at 6pm without having dinner...
