Getting ready to leave Cuba, bittersweetly.
Some things I'll miss about Cuba:
Food! Rice, beans, etc.
Some things I won't miss about Cuba:
I'd wanted to go to Baracoa & Guantanamo. After walking around Santiago some more, seeing the main parts of the city, I went to the train & bus station. Asked around, sounded like no private buses going to those destinations.
With my cash reserves running low, still concerned about getting safely out of Cuba, I decided not to go. Instead, spent the beautiful day in a grassy area under the sun, thinking.
Now planning to leave Cuba Friday if feasible.
So far Santiago de Cuba seems like one of the dirtier, noisier cities in the country.
