Where I stayed
Anyway, we started the day with a good breakfast at the casa consisting of eggs, bread, lots of fruit, juice and coffee. We then went out for some espresso in Habana Vieja, and also to find a bank
The museum wasn't as good as I was hoping - pretty boring, actually, although the propaganda was pretty great. Did you know that the CIA introduced Dengue fever to Cuba? Amazing. The museum presented a pretty heavily editted version of the revolution, but it was fascinating none-the-less. We also saw the Granma (the boat that Castro & Che used to get their small revolutionary band to Cuba), which was pretty exciting.
We finally found some good food at a restaurant kiddy-corner to the Ambus Mundos hotel - it was good and cheap, with some delicious rice & beans. We were pretty knackered from walking, so we headed back to the hotel for some relaxation after the walking and the heat.
In the evening we went for drinks & dinner. Dinner was at El Templete, right on the Canal de Entrada, with great food. We had Sangria, I had mahi-mahi, and Ross had grouper. We finished the meal with a 'Bohio'chocolate that was all kinds of delicious, and then it was bed by about 10pm.
