We treasured the visit with locals in Old Havana. Dance, music, sites and smiling happy cheer. One day touring the Outer Communities brought us the best interactions with school students.

This city is surely in a time warp. The number of pre 1959 cars is fabulous. The Tropicana Cabaret performance is breathtaking. The costumes are extravagant. We would have liked to spend a lot more time to explore the local crafts.

You should have no problem. If they ask you at the airport, very unlikely, telling them you are going under the category "Support the Cuban People." Buena Suerte!
