    Great story. Nice balance of the locale, people and politics. You failed to mention how a Vermont resident coped with the many non-airconditioned establishments in Cuba. Maybe that was intentional so as to not discourage future tourists.

  2. Tim Weed says:

    Thanks Brian! I'm sort of anti-airconditioning anyway, yet another reason Cuba is my kind of place.

  3. Derrick says:

    Love the psychology of the taxi driver's line, so cool, it said so much with so little:“I thought so. The way they were talking, I thought I was in a film.”

  4. Tim keep this up and the borders may come down!
