Return to Havana

Cienfuegos to Havana, Cuba, 8 September 2016

.

I am back from Sabah. Mostly there was no internet and no time so there will be no temporary posts. I will start with posts on Sabah soon but first here is the final post on the tour in Cuba. Jools and I stayed on for some extra days in Havana and we will return to that after the Sabah posts.

Early in the morning in Cienfuegos, here are two people fishing with a freighter behind them.

      Thank you. Not so good. I took a local course and bought a CD course for my earlier travel in Patagonia and was able to make some basic communication then but I had forgotten it for this trip and didn’t realise I had deleted the tutorial files from the Walkman-type device I use on planes. I didn’t matter though. On this trip I didn’t need any Spanish.
