All beautiful things come soon to an end and so did our Cuba trip. For my last post, I’ve decided to show you some interesting and/or mostly funny things we’ve experienced over there… You have to bare in mind that Cuba was and still is largely isolated from the Western world and most of the people are poor… but still – you have to see it to beileve it.

Most modern MTB frame in Cuba… 🙂 but I’ve seen some full-suspension ones as well… but primitive compared to the bikes we ride in Europe or basicly elsewhere…

From time to time, you can spot a strange vehicle on the road – unfortunately too late to have a better shot but this bus reminded me of the old Serbian movie “Ko to tamo peva?” and all I was missing was “Krstic i sin” logo painted on the side of it… The bus was missing the engine covers as well… The yellow things you see at the front are Coco-taxis – motorbike taxis for two people…

Che is watching you everywhere in Cuba – literally

Cuban electricity standard – I guess their electricians must be acrobats and puzzle solvers as well to work on such gems.

There is no hot running water in Cuba, apart from the hotels. So people mount electrical water heaters in the showers – it was kind of scarring looking at those exposed 110V/220V wires running centimeters from running water while having a shower… after a few days we got used to being so close to death – anyway at least we’d die clean 😀

Rowing to Florida? Probably not, but these two local fisherman probably can’t afford a new boat so they made their “floating” device from pieces lying around…

Weird angle of photo? Nope… Weird angle of truck – it is driving straight towards me, just got twisted a bit… But until it still runs, it’s good for the road.

Poor mans bus – trucks like these are driving all around Cuba taking locals for a few pesos along…

Shock in the departure hall of the Havana airport – there are rows and rows of world flags hang below the ceiling, but in the first one, by an unknown coincidence, Slovenian flag is making company to the Cuban one – I guess we are popular there 🙂

Bended wing of the A330 on our flight back to Madrid – Boeing is just making lemons into lemonade since 1916 🙂

Last view of our Airbus after landing …
