    Walking tour and a Jazz club

    October 22, 2017 in Cuba ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Breakfast was cooked for us in the casa by our host Frank with the highlight being a massive avocado the size of your head. We headed to Parque Central for the free walking tour which went for nearly four hours. We visited the first cigar workshop, Capitilo building, Bacardi House, a number of different squares and a mojito drinks place. We stopped for drinks on the rooftop bar of the hotel where Ernest Hemingway used to stay. We had lunch at Dandy’s where Emma’s friend’s boyfriend worked. We had really yummy pork tacos and sweet potato chips. We then walked out to the dance party ‘Rumba’ that was just finishing when we arrived at Callejon de Hamel. There were some interesting artist furniture made out of baths. We walked up to the National Hotel and had drinks on the porch. We then walked home along the Malecon. Back home for a sleep, some rum and showers. We had dinner at Dona Eutimia where we had yummy frozen margaritas. Emma and I shared fried plantains with different toppings on top. I had garlic prawns for main course. We walked along the Malecon stopping for rum and passionfruit drinks on the way. We walked up to Jazz club La Zorra for some easy listening. After a while and a brief appearance by me on stage we caught a vintage car cab ride home.Read more
