Our trip to Cuba ended much as it began. We were overwhelmed by the beauty and the poverty of this tiny island nation. But now, after months of preparations, days filled with visual images we will never forget, and photographs that will end up in posts far into the future, it was finally time for us to pack our bags for the journey home.
As we were preparing our bags Saturday night for an early morning departure, I watched the hustle and bustle of Havana. Neither the city’s great beauty, nor its decay, were visible in this nighttime shot. Left to admire is just the vibrancy of the city.
It was a memorable experience. While our visit only touched the edges of this wonderful country, I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to experience its rich culture, wonderful people and incredible beauty.
If you haven’t experienced Cuba, put it on your bucket list!
I just might do that! Thanks for this thoughtful and thought provoking travelogue.
