Cuba~Blog #3 (3/28)

Bici Taxis? Bumpy? It is amazing how quick your perspective can change! Today we hired a horse carriage to take us to the meeting. It’s amazing how that little horse can canter while carrying eight people and the carriage! It’s also amazing how much you notice the flaws in the roads when going that speed! […]

Cuba~Blog #2 (3/27 evening)

Our first night is done…wow. We are already on island time, though. Despite the fact that we knew we should leave our apartment at 7, we didn’t leave till 7:30, much to our translators’ chagrin. We were so late, that they hired Bici taxis for us. Now, a Bici taxi (Bici is short for bicicleta) […]

I still haven’t figured out if the toilet works, but there is running water! That in itself seems amazing. Even though I know I am only […]

It was all […]
