Our balcony in the first place.
For breakfast you would be served a standard fare, fresh fruit, papaya, bananas, pineapple, guavas and oranges, Cuban coffee with hot milk, bread, fresh squeezed juice, and eggs with cheese grated on them, a great way to start your day.
We moved on to Trinidad which is close to the mountains. We hired a collectivo or a private taxi to take us there, the young man was a very good driver and we safely arrived at out next casa. There is a network across Cuba, you just tell you host where you want to go the next day and they phone around and find a place for you. Trinidad is close to the mountains and the sea, there are beaches and trips to waterfalls to be had. We spent out time in town, the weather was not warm enough to hit the beach. The first day we did a walking tour of the the old town, the view from atop the steeple of a former church was astounding. I was not so sure about the integrity of the bells though.
Wendy is a potter so we had to stop at a pottery factory. I just love all the beautiful colours and I would have bought one of the masks I was looking at if I thought I could have gotten back to Canada in one piece.
We are back at the boat in Marina Hemingway in Havana. We are heading off to figure out where the Canadian embassy is and renew our passports. We will have to stay in one place for at least two weeks until our new passports come.
