Photos: Eight days in Cuba

I was lucky to be invited back to Cuba by the Cuban Tourism Board to explore the country’s authentic culture in some of its eastern cities. We spent time in Camaguey, Santiago de Cuba and Holguin, and many spots in between.

We listened to a lot of music, ate a lot of food, tried a bit of dancing and generally were swept up the joie de vivre that is enjoyed by the Cuban people. It’s great to get away from winter by spending time on the beach, but you really can’t say you’ve visited Cuba until you take the time to see other parts of the country.
