Day 2: We woke up very early, around seven o’clock, jet lagged I thought. We went to have breakfast, the buffet was great, many variety of food. We prepared and went to try the famous icecream of Coppelia, I took vanilla with caramel and cookies, just delicious.
After that we went to buy some internet card, okay here comes something really important that you should know. In cuba it dosn’t exist internet like in other countries, here people don’t have internet and wifi in his home, there is no “card” that you insert in your mobile, you don’t go to restaurants and use free wifi, either in the hotel. In this country you should pay for every minute that you use internet. The only way to use internet is buying some cards/papers where there is a user name and a password. If you go to the hotel you will pay around 3/4€ per one hour of internet conection. If you buy this cards on the official stores of “ETECSA” thats the name of the company, you will pay 1,5€ for one hour of internet. Okay, once you buy this you should find a wifi area where you will connect and you will have to introduce the username and password that you bought. Time starts running since you log in, but be careful the conection it dosn’t work very well so it may take a while to check your Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram…. To stop the time you should go off from the wifi, if you don’t, your time will continue running off and you will spend all your minutes.
After that, we took a taxy to Old La Habana to sightsee around the city. The streets were full of color, beautiful old buildings, old cars and lot of people. It was so nice to walk around and contemplate all the beautiful streets where I took amazing photos, it feels so good to be there.
To have lunch, there are many options. You can go to a restaurant or to a typical “Casa Paladar” this are “houses” that brings menu to have lunch for a good price, you can eat langosta, ropa vieja, salad and rice for 10€. Eat in a typical cuban house the tasty food of the country. This is very common in La Habana. I really recommend you to try it. We went to “Paladar Sevilla” in Obispo Street. Very nice place with live music.
We continue the day walking around this magic city, discovering places and meeting cuban people and their stories. I took lot of photos, I hope you like them. I wore a colorful dress from ZARA store, perfect for the hot weather. I prefer to wear dresses instead of two pieces looks, shorts because I feel more comfortable wearing one piece that its not too tied to be walking under the hot weather. I also opted for a comfy shoes, this sandals are perfect for walk but after being used in many travel this time has been the last because they broke :/ Thanks god I brought a pair of flipflops on my bag during my citytour, I thought this could happen. The bag that I’m wearing its from Gucci, spring summer season of 2015 and the sunglasses are from RayBan, my favorites. Take a look to my photos and have a nice day!
