I had a wonderful trip guys. I am so touched by everyone's well wishes for me. I'm glad a few of you folks knew where I was going so you wouldn't worry too much. Cuba is the safest place for a tourist to go in hurricane season. They are so prepared. Every room and public area has directions in what to do in case of evacuation. Thankfully we didn't need those directions.<br><br>Our flight into Ciego de Avila was the last for the day. We could see Lily in the distance. The very outer edges of the storm arrived just after dark on Sunday and by Monday morning we were pelted with rain and 50 mph winds. Palm leaves were flying everywhere and you had to be carefull walking outside. By evening almost all traces were gone. We woke up Tuesday to glorious sunshine which remained the entire week. <br><br>I ate lobster and shrimp every single night. I gained back all the weight I lost. A typical day was: 6 am rise and go for capachino coffee with coffee liquer. Go for continental breakfast of croissents and fruit at 7 am. 9 am go for full breakfast. 12 noon was lunch of fish or chicken with fries and rice. 4 pm was snack time. 7 pm was 4 course dinner of lobster and shrimp. 10 pm snacks. Not to mention all the bars well attended throughout the day. <br><br>Here are just a couple of pics. I will be building a new homepage this week.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
The camera worked out superbly. I am so happy I chose the Nikon 995. I had a little problem with high humidity. The lens would fog when I took the camera out from the air conditioned room so I would have to wait about 5 -10 min to take a pic.<br><br>The beach is THE best I have ever seen in all my travels by a long shot. The sand is soft as baby powder and the water as warm as a mothers womb. There are no drop offs or rip-tides. Completely safe.<br><br><br><br>
