Anon said ” hey this is pretty good, they said the arrival process could take at least an hour and we could be out of here in half. We were standing at the baggage Carousel in Havana’s Airport. I was beside myself with excitement and could already feel the electricity and energy of the place. But we were going nowhere.
I should have expected this. We had flown from New York via Charlotte – where all communication was through the iPad, I do not exaggerate – maybe the place was owned by Apple, but it was unsettling. We Overnighted at an airport hotel in Mexico city and in the morning joined queues with people who appeared to be moving house by plane.
The carousel was spitting out 2 bags every half hour. First lesson in Cuba….patience… have Mojito …a chat…..another Mojito
Two and half hours later we had our bags…..but then we had to queue to exchange money…don’t even imagine you’ll be able to do that in town…suck it up and breath.
What you will have, while waiting, is the kaleidoscope of life that is Cuba to watch and soak up.
There they are…….. the cars, some in better condition than others more diesel in than out but they are everywhere….these are shots from our taxi on the way to our hotel…so first impressions, important…….don’t you think.
Stick with me it gets so much better…
