Cuba: Day 5 (Part 2)

November 20, 2010

On our way to Playa del Este we encountered more propaganda signs.  We each had our eyes glued to the taxi windows in case we should see one, as we were completely enamored!

In the parking lot at the beach there were a myriad of cars that just oozed coolness.

Although, there was one that captured my heart, simply because of its color.

The funniest moment of the trip occurred later when we were at the beach.  I was engrossed in my sunbathing when Marc announced that he would be back in an hour with both a kayak and food.  I thought he was joking (you know those Aussies and their sense of humor) and was just going for a walk.  However, to my delighted surprise, he returned an hour later with exactly what he promised.  Where he found a kayak in Cuba, one will never know?

The food though consisted of: chips, baby food, and melted chocolate, as that is all he could find.  The next photo is proof just in case you did not believe me.

After we devoured the “food,” Kristin and Marc then kayaked in the ocean leaving me some time to digest the trip thus far.

    wow, another purple car. They always seem to have these retro cool color painted car. Very interesting and I like how you bring us back to your trip through your photo essay.

    Far out- those billboards are intense. The beach and water look so amazing. Thanks for sharing your time in Cuba; one of the first things I thought of when I got my Aussie passport is that now I can check it out!

    I’ve really enjoyed these posts on Cuba, such a fascinating country. Outside my window is about 3 inches of snow; that last picture is almost enough for me to pack my bags and head to Cuba.

    I am learning SO much about Cuba through your posts. I’ve found all this entire trip of your absolutely fascinating. You can tell so much about the culture through what you’ve written, your experiences even as a tourist, and the pictures!

    I love the pictures and love the billboards they are very interesting even if some are very anti-american.

    I also love those cars & girl don’t play that pink one is the best one. We would look great driving around in it~

    The purply pinkish car is also my favourite photo! Would you recommend bringing your own snacks while on tour in Cuba? I don’t think i’ll enjoy eating baby food as my lunch.
