Cuba was more beautiful than I could've imagined. The people have such an inviting culture. We told our host that we didn't want to do "tourist things" but instead wanted to do meet the Cuban people, embrace their culture, and experience their everyday life.
So we travelled to her hometown on the bus (.50 cents versus $50 dollars) for a little over an hour. It was a beautiful beach town where the economy was based off of making rum for the president and fresh cigars!
