My last trip to Cuba was from 27.11 to 09.12.
If you have some questions, please do not hesitate to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will answer you as good as I can. i also have two cuban friends who will also help you, for instance by finding good and cheap accommodation, transportation etc. And I am sure that they will also love to take you on a “guided tour” in their wonderful country.
|Before I left I collected a lot of different things: 11 kg. Lego bricks, a used laptop, t-shirts, used mobile phones, hundreds of ball pens, a lot of cables, flashlights, teddy bears, sunglasses, electric toothbrushes and many other good things that I wanted to give to the Cubans.
Some of them they could use themselves, others they could sell on.
I had decided to park outside the departure hall and go inside to check in my luggage.
I also had a sack with a lot in it, and I asked the check-in lady if they would weigh it at customs. She said no to that, so I took that too.
Don’t even dare to think about how many kg. I had with me.
When I had entered the arrivals hall in Havana, there were 4-5 tables where some ladies were sitting who needed to see a completed form that we should have been given on the plane.
I hadn’t got any but got one from one of the ladies.
A lot had to be written, names, addresses in Denmark and here in Cuba.
I wrote a piece of gossip, used Zenta’s name and wrote Tivoli Friheden in two places and that I was born on Christmas Eve 2012.
The lady was very happy about it, and I continued to passport control, which lasted only 1 minute and could continue to baggage claim and out in 28ºC to the waiting taxi driver, who of course drove a 70-year-old Chevrolet the almost 25 km., the first 10 along rumbling dark roads with 3 police checks. When we reached the driver was kind enough to carry my 24kg. heavy suitcase up to the third floor.
Here is my room:
I made friends with Andres. His mother is a widow and she lives in a huge apartment, which Fidel Castro gave to her late husband after he had taken part in the revolution.

She wants to sell it and buy a smaller one instead. Here come some pictures from it.
The price is 20 thousand or 30 thousand. It Is a total of 50 thousand at least to Buy AND repair.
Havanan cars, some of them are almost 70 years old. And a single motorbike, an MZ 250
