Once finals were over and the excitement of Christmas died down, Jenn and I headed on a relaxing vacation to Cuba.
Cuba was a lot of fun! Except for the part about attempting to leave our resort. They try to do everything possible so you cannot leave the resort unless it is with one of their tours. If you ever go to Cuba, I say rent a car from the airport and drive to where you want to go. The island is about 5 hours across so it is not hard to get from one place to another. Everyone there loves tourists! Be careful with your money and don’t flash it around as if you got lots because people will try to get it from you. Other than that, I never really felt unsafe there. I would love to go back and really experience Cuba for its people. The people are the best part of Cuba. They are so loving of each other and their country. There were Cuban flags hanging from windows and they are very proud of their products. They make good rum and cigars. Tip: Everything that starts with a “C” is good in Cuba. The food was probably the worst part of the whole trip. I think Jenn was quite sick from the food, she felt nauseated for about 4 days of the trip. The weather was nice and the people were friendly. It was a lot of fun and I would love to go back, but do it on my own terms!
