Sunday reading

One of the little pleasures in life for me is to read the writings of others with respect to travels and trips made. It is always enthralling to read and imagine being there with the person who wrote the article. This weekend’s edition in the Singapore Straits times was no different.

The main article pertain to a local celebrity’s visit to the recently “rehabilitated” Caribbean island of Cuba.

My brother-in-law (Suan’s younger brother) had travelled to Cuba once some years back to attend a wedding of a Cirque du Soleil co-worker. The image he painted of the island matches quite closely with the newspaper article and reinforced that view of vintage American cars cruising the streets of Havana. He said things were really affordable then. How it will likely change from now on…

That said, it is ironic that despite being “60 miles” from the US, it was largely banned for Americans. Until now that is.


Well, as our Singapore celebrity reminded, bring lots of cash. Plastic does not get you far in destinations that are not as “sophisticated”. Sure hope to add this island to the bucket list one day. The bucket is full now.
