Cuba 2014: Day 3

This morning began with much anxiety, as we were not at all sure what to expect from John. He showed up slightly early to meet us in our hotel lobby.  We started off with small talk about our visit to Cuba and what we had thought, then he presented his real reason for coming. He …

Cuba 2014: Day 2

20140518_142640817_iOS

We lost 4 today. They showed up late to our morning meeting and weren’t allowed to come to Salvador Gonzalez’s workshop/gallery, Revolution Square, el Hotel Nacional de Cuba, and Old Havana. Besides that, today was really interesting in general.   The first was defined by Salvador Gonzalez’s Santería-influenced art. Santería is one of the four …

Cuba 2014: Day 1

Alas, many months late, I have gotten to posting these journal entries that I wrote.  As it happens, I ended up losing all but a few of my pictures when my iPhone was wiped during an update a week ago.  Therefore, though I had intended for much of this to be illustrated, it isn’t.  I …

Peru 2012: Day 11

Today once again started early at 5:45. While the room I was sharing with Seona faces inwards on the peninsula onto the city of Puno, Mama and Daddy’s room faced out onto the main body of Lake Titikaka and the Uros Islands. They weren’t able to distinguish the floating islands this early in the morning, …

Peru 2012: Day 10

Today started more or less early at 6:00, so as to catch our 8:00 Andean Explorer train to Puno. We had breakfast, and were picked up just before 7:00 by the same driver we had on our Sacred Valley Tour. He drove us, with our luggage, to the Cuzco PeruRail Station. Though the road leading …

Peru 2012: Day 9

Today was also fairly uneventful. We spent the morning watching TV again, and didn’t even leave the room except to retrieve my phone from Mama’s room after she had left with Daddy to see Qorikancha and San Blas. The time we left, though, was for lunch. We had all decided to have lunch at McDonald’s, …

Peru 2012: Day 8

Today was my birthday. It started at a good time: 8:00, since breakfast ended at 9:00, and this was check-out time. Breakfast wasn’t all that nice, since there weren’t many choices. Surya celebrated my birthday by lighting a candle for me. We spent the next hour or so shopping at the market near the train …

Peru 2012: Day 7

Today, perhaps the most memorable day of our trip, once again began very early. We woke up at 4:00, so as to be ready for our 5:00 pickup. We packed up, making sure to keep all supplies we needed for our trip to Machu Picchu in a backpack so that our suitcases could be left …
