Trip to Cuba
« Reply #-1 on: December 13, 2016, 12:42:13 PM »
We recently made a people to people trip to Cuba.  It was a very interesting experience with lots of different things to do and see, especially the 1800's era buildings.  Didn't see any smokers in action but saw a guy with a 55 gallon drum laying on the side cut open to reveal a cook top with wood as fuel.  We spent most of our time in Havana but did a day tour to Vinales which is know for tobacco farming and caves.

Thanks for sharing the photos.

Unfortunately I have seen/read reports that Cuba’s Surge in Tourism Keeps Food Off Residents’ Plates ... here's a small sampling of what the impact of tourism is having on the Cuban people:
