The Bay of PIgs

After departing the Isle of Youth, we flew back to Havana and caught a ride down to the Bay of Pigs.  Yes, that Bay of Pigs! For some reason, I always imagined it as a dirty backwater hiding a dirty past.  Fortunately, reality could not have been further away from my imagination. Below are a […]

I hope this finds […]
