back from Cuba

Well, I just returned from a week in Cuba as you can see by my pictures. The beaches were lovely and stretched on forever, the people were friendly and relaxed and it did us good as North Americans to soak up a bit of that unrushed attitude. I have mixed feelings about staying at a resort so unrelated to the culture around it, but the goal was not a cultural experience nor a humanitarian venture, but simply to give my husband a week where he didn’t have to worry about managing anything. And that we accomplished. The blue is so blue there. Sometimes I just stood on the beach and tried to burn the colour into my retina.
