Welcome to Cuba!
My first visit to Cuba consumed five hundred road and one hundred walking miles on this beguiling island. Belying its proximity to the US shoreline with an ideological remoteness, introducing myself as British rather than American, I trod warily during political rhetoric, particularly with the older generation. Questions as to why things happened the way they did invariably elicited an ironic retort ¡welcome to Cuba! After twelve intriguing days, I was sorry to leave a country with such a rich history, warm welcome and new found friends. Hasta luego!
