Made it down to Playa Siboney in lovely old 50's chevy for 20cuc.. It took a while walking about the sea front to find my casa that I had fond memories of.. When I'd tracked it down the lady there remembered me after all these years but was dissapointed to find out the room was already let.



I was then led round to her neighbours her had a place for me at. 25cuc a night, to walk in you would pass mounted reptiles and turtles in the front room, which give of 'strange' aleady.. I hate looking at dead and polished up turtle shells so didn't catch what othet stuff they had in there.. But outside they have three ducks, a couple of puppies and a stinky honking pig, all curently alive..



It was a brilliant sunny day so quickly changed into my beach wear and headed out to top up my tan and check out the scenery. Siboney is a big draw for the European sex tourists, and saw a lot of them perving on girls a third of their age. I went to the beach bar for the amazing sunset, the horizon was free of those annoying clouds that generally appear to creep up and the sun dipped into the sea perfectly.



In general siboney was just dissapointing, I was pretty bored for the short time I was there.. I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna go back there and stay when I return to Cuba, maybe just for a daytrip and should've checked put a new town like Baracoa instead. I've been checking my calendar and the time has passed way to quickly but a lot of the time has been wasted on travel days and recovering from hangovers.. So now unfortunatly I'm skipping one of my "top things to do.." which was the trek up into the sierra maestra to see fidels rebel HQ and will miss out on the pinar del rio province too. My plan now is a couple of days in Trinidad and then a day back in habana ready for my flight to cancun on the Tuesday.
