My name is Jonathan and my most recent trip to Cuba was from December 22nd, 2009 - January 12th, 2010 and I was able to go with my Abuela through Cuba Travels in Los Angeles, Ca. The main purpose of this visit, was to get to know my family more and also to take my Abuela with me so that she can experience Cuba before it’s too late.
The above picture was taken on New Years Eve, as we enjoyed some pretty delicious food, as always. My cousin in Cuba is actually a licensed tourist housing Room and Board member, and she is also a nurse. So she gets people from all over the world and it fascinates me how many people come back to her home in La Lisa, Cuba. It’s about 20min outside of Havana.
The greatest about Cuba, in my opinion, is they are all so contently living life, with the bare minimums, and they are happy, when here in the U.S. people are always aiming for more money. Cuba, is a prime example that shows that you do not need money to be happy.
My next trip, I plan on going through Mexico, since i have a Mexican, US, and Cuban passport, so that I can stay for three months instead of three weeks.
