BACKPAKING IN HAVANA 2002
After a 8-hour long flight (instead of 3), I arrived in Varadero around 1 after midnight. The plane was delayed, then it had to drop off some passengers in the Dominican Republic, and then we had to wait for the "fuel truck" to gas the plane up.
I checked in the Pullman Hotel around 2 a.m.
Not being a great fan of a beach, I left for Havana the next day. I spent 2 days there.
