Of course our temporary outing from the hotel coincided with the nightly tropical storm and downpour, and we once again had to dash through the rivers-previously-known-as-streets to get back afterwards. All part of a Cuban summer's day.
This left us one free day in Havana
Fortunately our forced tour of Havana revealed many interesting sights, and included a visit to John Lennon Park and a ride home in a Cococab. In the evening we found a bar with live music, and somehow afterwards we ended up in the middle of a huge teenage rave party before escaping back to our room.
We rose early the following morning to take a rather provocative photo of ourselves on the main street of Havana wrapped in the Cuban flag before, alas, it was time to head for the airport and to leave this amazing country. Next time we stay in Cuba for much longer than 8 days!
