Cuba - December 1999 / January 2000 / February
After having a hard time
deciding and weeding out the bad options, me and my friend Wolfgang - further
called mi amigo - decided to visit Cuba. First for the warm climatic conditions
and second for the beautiful women - no, sorry, for the reasonably priced flight
that we´d gotten through a tourist office in Frankfurt. Flight and a car-and-hotel
package of the cuban Horizontes Hotel chain were the things we´d
booked from Germany.
And here we
off Ciego de Avila an airport comparable to Lauf-Lillinghof,
except that the latter doesn´t have an international airport code
yet. Same size though. The other is called AVI. Following the green
line we headed to Havanna, then following the pink
dotted line to Pinar del Rio, back
to Havanna, to Varadero and after that down to Trinidad.
I now in 2002 added the
eastern parts to the map above, marked as a violet-dashed
This trip was even better then the first, for we met more people, talked more
and in general had a lot of fun. I took about the same amount of fotos which have
been added to secions on the left. This time, destinations were Varadero, Trinidad,
Camagüey, Santiago and Baracoa.
Mostly did we stay in Horizontes ()
Hotels, payed with US-Dollars and not with Peso.
The flight this time came from LTU
