Oh Alix, we are yearning to go to Cuba. Problem is, we can't travel there on a US passport. That's about to change, I hear. We will be first (well almost) in line....

Alix, welcome back and I don't blame you for not missing the snow. All of my snow melted over the last couple of days.

YAY!! I know we all feel more hopeful about spring coming when the snow melts. We came home to snow, but the temps are warming up so I'm not going to complain.

Honestly the food was nothing to write home about. There just isn't a lot of variety in foodstuffs in Cuba. The staples (beans and rice, seafood etc) was great. Their version of scrambled eggs is too horrible to even contemplate. Overall I think the best I can say about the food is it was hot, brown and there was plenty of it.
