We, (Martha and I) have made it to Cuba. Getting to Cuba for US citizens is not easy so we came with a tour, (MotoDiscovery), which is under licence from the US Treasury Department to operate “People to People” tours. It will be a vacation and an adventure as all rooms are booked and routes are planned.
Been here one day and I love Cuba. Everyone needs to put Cuba on their Bucket list it is truly an amazing place and the people our wonderful. The silly embargo needs to end! We could learn much from them in the line of self reliance, community and racial integration.
Internet is spendy here so will keep this to a minimum and post with a few pictures.
Havana Airport Terminal
The '50s cars are everywhere, many have had diesel engines installed when they could not get parts for US cars.
2010 Road King we are riding
Pan Head Harley they have kept running
Luis's shop, bought up lots of old Harleys, one Indian and an old Excelser. Even has an Airel Square Four. I could have spent hours here. It is amazing how they have kept them going. If you need a spoke you take a welding rod and form one end and thread the other.
Tomorrow we head out of Havana, not sure when we will get internet again. Food is too good, I am going to get fat.
