Just LOOK at the sky and water!

It is exciting to see the newest people who are just arriving to these views with fresh eyes, 
lending me their perspectives.


At home, almost every surface that could possibly bear advertising, 

There is very little of that kind of thing in Cuba, obviously 
and NO American ads anywhere.  

It is kind of nice.

The birds are adorable.

...but I hate the way they fly away when I try to watch them too long 
...or even take a photo.

There are times when the ocean breeze can be rather intense. 

I have no trouble imagining how frightening a hurricane must be around these parts.

What? No high speed internet anywhere there?

Because education is free in Cuba, 
everyone is well educated.

At this point though, high speed internet is not available on the island and modem access is still way more expensive than what average Cubans can afford.

Is this the NEW wave?

Even thought the waves tossed us upside down and pulled us apart from one another we kept on going back for more.
