Cuba here I come!

On the eve of my departure (and on Christmas Eve too): my bags aren't yet packed, but they will be soon!

I'll be offline for just over a month while in Cuba - an interesting change given how accessible internet is in Canada.  I expect that I may find only the odd dial-up connection at best.  

Although I will spend the greater part of the month in Havana,  I hope to visit the east side of the island at the beginning of my trip - it will be interesting to see how Santiago is rebuilding after the hurricane.  I also found out this week, a good friend from Ottawa, Jen Adams is joining me for the first week of my trip!

Here are a few pictures of my 2010 trip to keep as a placeholder until I can post again.  I expect to arrive in Mexico CIty at the end of January.  

Merry Christmas to everyone and wishing you and your families, all the best for 2013!
