Just got back late last night from another great stay in Camagüey City. Found a couple of incredible new restaurants, made many new friends, and visited with many old ones too.
Bought a Cuban passport for my novia and helped bail her brother out of jail...long story. Visited with a few new friends in the poorest section of the barrio...a huge maze of very tiny dirt floor shacks pieced together with anything that can be found. That really blew my mind...just when I thought I'd seen it all. Unbelievable.
Went to a fiesta at my Cuban family's casa in Sola. Helped to kill the pig for the fire...a great honour for a yuma apparently ~ at least that's what they told me. All I know is the ron certainly helped, otherwise I couldn't have managed it. Mi soy Cubano ahora. jajaja It was a great day long party with lots of eating, drinking, dancing, and laughter with the whole family. Wonderful experience. Can't wait to do it again.
Good to be home too of course to recharge. But already missing everyone who made me feel so loved and appreciated. If anyone has any questions about life in the city or out in the surrounding countryside, feel free to ask. :)
¡ay! I'll never fly with Sunwing again...another long story, but please don't get me going on that one.
