May - June 2015: Road Trip

Part 1 & Part 2


I drove 4,997 miles across North America with my mother. There were tears and laughter. There were weak cocktails and even weaker coffees. There were brakes that needed replacing. There may have been a spot of exercise. But mostly there was driving. (And for the first time ever: mobile-friendly galleries!)

 

January - March 2015 : Cuba

Viñales: Five weeks in a tobacco-farming town of eastern Cuba that is the epicenter of Cuban climbing. Masquerading as a Canadian and starting to figure out life after coming down from the climbing high.

Cienfuegos: One week in the most "French" of Cuban cities, speaking nothing but Spanish, getting some culture, and confusing the hell out of the pedicab drivers by walking everywhere.

Trinidad: Two weeks trying (and failing) to find a soul in a "perfectly" restored colonial town that is a UNESCO-sponsered Disneyland catering to international tourists.

Havana: One week in the city, watching the scheming jineteros target lemming tourists who take photos of ruined buildings that serve as canvas, warehouse, or playground while awaiting UNESCO-sanctioned restorations.
