Footstep in the sands of Wadi Rum, Jordan, 2008

Cuba, April 2011

Sun, Salsa, and Mojitos!


The Havana waterfront from the Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro.
Inside the battlements of the Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro.

The back streets of Old Havana.

On the outside wall of a home.

Toddlers just don’t appreciate Cuban street bands.

The Plaza de Armas is the place to find some light reading.

A mojito or four in Bar Monserrate is a fun way to end the day.

The world famous Buena Vista Social Club!


Tobacco growing country.

Inside a tobacco drying hut.

A tobacco-grower’s cabin where…

…they make us coffee…

…and show us how to roll a cigar.

Museo Giron

We find ourselves at the Bay of Pigs Museum on the 50th anniversary
of that ill-fated invasion attempt.

One of the planes that fought off the American warships.



View from the Hotel Las Cuevas across the town of Tinidad.

Looking south over the central Plaza Mayor.

This view of the Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco
is used on the 25 centavos convertible peso coin.

Salsa at the Casa de la Musica.

La Cueva disco – the Rave in a Cave!

My feet needed a rest after all that dancing.

Cayo Blanco

The paradise island of Cayo Blanco.

Sun, Sea, and Starfish!

The Cars

The last night in Havana.

Goodnight Cuba!
