Boxing Day And Christmas Catch Up
greetings to our friends world wide last nights blog made at considerable effort and expense seemed to crash before it was published so a brief catch up before we get to boxing day. the flight with air France was so so they really seem to have gone down hill this last year there wasn't even a choice of meal and itveas a 777 plane with the awful seats, we had to check the wheelchair in at the gate and when we arrived at Havana Cuba it was two hours before we had the luggage and the wheel chair it was really quite nerve wracking typically air France staff had all pissed off before anyone could figure out what would happen to the wheel chair the Cubans were helpful ish but of course nobody spoke any English. so when we got out we changed some cash and caught a taxi the wheelchair did speed things up with queues etc and we got the same room at the hotel as we had last time, too late then for eating and after a good nights sleep and crowded but good breakfast I left the girls to explore the tourists sights and got what I could by way of film on Christmas day it was almost normal for taxi vintage yank jobs and even lorry buses even saw an old camel bus which we didn't on the last trip. WiFi hard to get to grips with but girl in business centre the worlds expert on every device. good meal in the restaurant in hotel and then sue had a trip on pavement and twisted ankle so I managed to get tubegrip bandage from nearby pharmacy. I went to my old spot near the railway crossing out by docks but I'd scouted out other spots and settled on the end of the motorway section which was pretty good and although perhaps old trucks are getting slightly thinner on the ground there is still a good selection from worldwide and plenty of variety and constant unexpected sights like a ford perfect coming around a corner also morris minor and lots of European truck a nice old man truck today,plenty of truck buses,old cars still everywhere,we hit the road tomorrow to Cienfuegos getting ourselves sorted this evening so we are all ready for the departure hoping the driver is well switched on and can get his head around my interests . 2.5 hours of film done by end of day two in Cuba it was wet Christmas but hotter and sunny boxing day.
