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!
