This week’s photo is from a little town in Italy called Vittorio Veneto.
Imagine going back in time by 50 years just by stepping onto an airplane. What do you think of? 1950′s American muscle cars? Beautiful colonial architecture? An era before internet, cell phones, or many other technologies we have today?
This is Cuba.
Cuba is such an amazing country and a large tourist destination for most of the world, but logistically a bit difficult for Americans because of the trade embargo placed on the country in the early 1960′s. You cannot fly to or from Cuba from the United States. However, our neighboring countries have no problem accommodating us. The cheapest option is to fly to Cancun, Mexico and catch a short connector flight over to Havana. Once you’re in the airport in Cancun, you can purchase a Cuban visa for $25 while you wait in line. In case you’re worried about getting in trouble because of a stamp in your passport, Cuba doesn’t do that. They only stamp the visa, which you leave when you exit the country. Anyways, on with the adventures.
