Discover Cuba differently in 7 days (Varadero to Havana)

Day 4 (Havana to Guanabo)

I take advantage of the morning to take a last tour of this marvelous city teeming with life. I buy peanuts on the street. Each packet costs 1 CUP ($0.06). I make reservations, the paper packaging is very ingenious and environmentally friendly. I see for the last time the capitol which has had a makeover. There is now gold on the cupola. I bid farewell to my hosts who were very kind during my stay. Lucia gave me Cuban coffee every morning for free. The other tourists in the house ate breakfast at 5 CUC ($7). It's too expensive for me!!! I prefer to eat a hot ham bun (pan con jamón caliente) at 5 CUP ($0.06) I find my bike which was in a parqueo in front of my house the lady wanted to charge me 5 CUC ($7) for bicycle parking. I told her that I only had 3 CUC and she accepted my offer. I'm back on the road, what happiness!!! I try to take a slightly different path, but I return to the place where I had found a pineapple on the seaside. This time I eat sardines bought the day before in Havana at 1.60 CUC ($2.25). It's a good dinner!! It's a change from ham! I meet a Cuban who recycles aluminum cans. It's not very profitable, a big bag like the one on the left can bring in about 30 CUP ($1.80) I meet another Cuban a little later and I can't help but ask him for a little photo. He was a very built man... I finally arrive at playa Megano near Guanabo to take a first dip in the sea. Finally the temperature allows it!!! I take the road again and I finally arrive in Guanabo. I find myself a nice room for 20 CUC ($28). It's old fashioned but I like it! My hosts Nelson and Nancy are very friendly. The hot water system is really very ingenious...it looks like a small coffee maker. The water is hot instantly. Here is an amazing video of my bedroom and how this showerhead coffee maker works. I have time to enjoy the beach which is located 50 meters from my room. This is the view when I come out of my room. The beach is not that bad, you can rent chairs for 2 CUC ($2.80). I'm enjoying the day. I buy fries at 1.50 CUC ($2.10) then a Daiquiri at 3 CUC ($4.20) It's finally sunny and warm. Long live the holidays!!! When the evening comes, I will have a plate of roast chicken with rice (pollo asado con arroz) at 30 CUP ($1.80) I'm going back to eat donuts at 0.15 CUC ($0.20) Beautiful day filled with sun, it was very good. You have to enjoy life before it flies away or gets confused . RIP :( NB The verb profit is used 4 times in this text...oops now 5! What are you waiting for to take advantage of it? Oh no!!!! 6 times!
