Playa Baracoa; a small resort town for Cubans just a little east of Havana, and our first trip anywhere on the bikes. It all went pretty well from the mechanical point of view. The town is nothing special, but we got to the beach for the first time, and most important, sampled our first home cooked Cuban food, which included a pig roast, lobster steak the size of my hand (big), home made fruit juice and much else too delicious to mention. Our accommodations were modest here, but the people most accommodating, and the prices very right. A good first time out venture of Havana. Havana, while I'm on the subject, was like a black hole. A great spot, but all roads seem to lead back there, and once you're there, you tend to forget about everything else in the country. Now that we've gotten away, we'll stay that way.
