Cuba continues...

We are having a terrific stay in Cuba. many cruisers had told us horror stories of over zealous officials and swingeing charges but, touch wood, to date we have encountered neither of these.

The waters are so clear it is amazing and we have encountered nothing but smiling assistance from all those whom we have to deal with. Yes there is a fair amount of form filling but it appears that provided you play by their rules and understand this is a communist country there are few problems.

We are currently in Cienfuegos, a town in the central southern coast. One of the great centres of conflict during the revolution. Che and Fidel memorabilia abound. Its a town of faded colonial buildings but clean and safe. Today we go to renew out tourist visas, we'll see how that goes.
