If you don't, you will run into some issues in Cuba… Why? The answer is very simple: Because the majority of people over in Cuba do not speak any English. If you are not looking the same as they do, there will be the first tourist fee added to your bill. Then the second if you do not speak any Spanish… But overall I have to say that life is still relatively cheap in Cuba. Most expensive part of Cuba so far was Havana (I only spent 2 weeks there so I have not seen the entire island).

This is another thing I very often do: I ask to locals to get around. In Cuba that is not that easy since nobody really talks English – and ma Spanish is not really good.. But anyway, I took this picture while our guide wanted to show me his home town and he knew that I like the old American cars! #Cuba #beatdietsch #lightsandbytes #clouds #Havana #Car

Still investigating the city, I have found a tall building that has a bar at the top where I took this photograph. I was kind of surprised they let my take pictures with a tripod! That is usually not the case… El Focsa is the name of the building / hotel / or whatever it was.  #lightsandbytes #beatdietsch Cuba, Tripod, Spanish, Photograph, Let It Be, Island, Building, Pictures, Top

Those US cars back from the 50ies to 60ies you see all over the country, well that is a known fact. But you cannot get there without bringing home a photograph like this!

I was a little surprised about the country because all the travel blogs I read for research are telling that Cuba is all about the cars, cigars and dancing. Cuba has so much more! There are beautiful landscapes, beaches, farmhouses etc. … Cuba, Beautiful Landscapes, Cigars, Beaches, Dancing, Spanish, Bring It On, Island, Country

As of today (July 2016), Cuba's internet connection is very sad. So, I have not had any option to let anybody know what I am doing on my trip.  This is not necessarily a bad thing, I just did not know what was going on in the rest of the world. But that is an experience too because people used to live like that for many years!

Another thing I liked so much in Cuba was the old part of the cities. Looking at the picture below sort of gives me the feeling that there is just chaos. But if you look closer, there is not. Cuba, Give It To Me, Bring It On, Closer, Cities, Old Things, Island, Pictures, Photography
