Cuba: HOW ERNESTO ESCAPED ME (10)
Cuba: HOW ERNESTO ESCAPED ME (10)

The news in September 2017 were so disturbing. Reports on Irma hurricane rushing through Cuba glued me to TV screen for hours. The monster storm was tearing off roofs, wrecking the power grid and damaging crops for couple of days on the island, leaving Cuba in need for assistance. More than 10 people were killed, some of those beautiful old facades in Havana have collapsed, towns are left with no electricity and drinking water. Such a loss for this vibrant island! (more…)

There really is a lot to see in Cuba. Even though Havana is not to be missed, it’s not the only place to visit. One of the reasons one comes to the island is probably the legacy of Che Guevara, the famous guerrilla leader who helped belated president Fidel Castro carry out the revolution. So, don’t go to the beach today but head out to Trinidad and Santa Clara! (more…)

Cuba: CADILLAC OR CHEVROLET, HM? (8)

Since the energy crises of the late 1980s, when the Soviet Union and Eastern European countries stopped supplying Cuba with the petrol it needed, “every possible means has been used to get around the island”. I read this in a guide book and let me tell you – it’s so true! (more…)

Cuba: THE CAPITOL AND THE REVOLUTION (7)

Remember that we were on foot strolling around the Old Town? Well, we will just keep walking, since there are some beautiful spots to see and visit in the Centro Habana. So, the next neighborhood, the very center of the Cuban capital, is dominated by Capitalio. (more…)

Okay, we took a break at the beach in the last Glimpse and hope you are now ready for a walk and all those “things to do in Havana”. There is so much to see in the city and I was actually hopping on the bus every once in a while, since there were daily rides from my Varadero hotel. Just packed few sweets, coins, my guide book and a camera and I was once again peeking behind another colonial building! (more…)

Cuba: OFF TO THE BEACH, CARIBBEAN STYLE! (5)
Cuba: OFF TO THE BEACH, CARIBBEAN STYLE! (5)

Cuban beaches are everything you heard about, and more! The island is located in the Mexican Gulf, its shores are splashed by the Caribbean Sea, so you can immediately picture – blue sky, beautiful horizon, crystal clear waters, white sands and that incredible turquoise sea color. Maybe a coconut-cocktail with the straw in it? Sure, why not, it’s all there! (more…)
