Cuba

my day in Cuba

sunny 21 °C

Ive arrived at Jose Marti airport in Havana at 8:36 and I'm ready to start my day nice and early. I first have to stop at my hotel and drop my luggage off before I cant even start my day. I'm staying at Hotel Saratoga, The second highest rated hotel in Havana. This five star hotel will cost be $261 and includes free breakfast and wifi.Its 0.9 KM from the center on Havana meaning I'm in prime location. The hotel is around 20 minutes away from the airport. Now that I have unpacked I can now start my day off in Cuba. The first thing I noticed when entering Havana there Is a ton of classic cars and whens theres tons of classic cars that meens there has to be some tour and you bet their was. I took a tour around Havana in an old 1950 car. The tour was 2 hours and while in the cars you could see tons of attractions. The tour is over and its time to grab something to eat. Im going to go eat at a place called Casa Roma. Although I'm in Cuba I actaullly got Italian food. This place was a 4.5/5 and it specializes in Italian pizza. That's exactly what I got. I went basic and got a cheese pizza with some mushrooms, bacon and onions. Im not going to lie it was easily one of the best pizza's ive ever tasted. It wasent that expensive, it cost a total of $12 but it also came with a drink as well. Now that I'm done I'm going to visit old Havana. In old Havana I'm going to be going to Plaza Vieja. Heer you will get some of the best lemonade and also you can shop for a bit. After I'm done here I'm going to go on some sight seeing. See what I noticed about Cuba is that its your typical relaxing vaction, you wont find anything here that is Americanized everything here is all true to its culture. Cuba is an old place so if you interested in the history of places and old monuments then this place is perfect, if you not into that then I recommend avoiding it. Once I'm done touring I'm going to go look for a place to eat dinner. Im going to eat at Il Rustico. This place is known for there Carbonara, so that's exactly what what I got. It was pretty good and wasent that pricey. It was a $20. Now I'm heading back to my hotel and this ends my trip around North America. Im going to be heading to Europe next. The first place ill be going is Portugal.
