CUBA: Areas visited in the latter part of March 2016, included La Habana, Pinar Del Rio, Varadero to Playa Giron, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Santa Spiritus, Santa Clara, and Jaimanitas a western suburb of La Habana. Visit —- for a more complete selection covering the entire visit.
On leaving this area I came upon this horse by a tobacco barn and in need of a nicotine patch. Travelling about 90 miles east of past La Habana I visited the Varadero beach resort frequented by European tourists. The ocean has the beautiful tropical blue hues and the beach is OK (I am sure there are amazing beaches in more secluded parts). The only shortcoming common throughout this Island is the infrastructure. I skipped the sunbathing and started south towards Playa Giron.
This town I believe is Jovellanos, a kind of crossroads lying at the center of Cuba, between Varadero on the north coast and Playa Giron on the south coast. Of course, I took more photographs of horse and buggies (Stock-Art Cuba) that seemed to be the main mode of transportation.
Enough for today, it’s time for a little siesta under the shade of some palm trees.…
From here I passed through the Bay of Pigs area on the way to next stop, the city of Cienfuegos.
