From the moment you walk off the airplane, you are instantly disconnected. Next you walk outside and you are in a timewarp. The antique cars, the colors, the people, every little crevasse has this magic to it that is indescribable. Clover had such an amazing time and made so many friends. The kids would run up to us and be so excited to see her. One little boy even picked out a flower for her during his school recess. It goes to show, how kind and thoughtful the Cuban people are. I was a bit hesitant since Clover had just turned two the week before we left, but I made sure I had packed all the essentials and didn’t encounter anything that couldn’t be resolved. She loved the natural juice boxes! Oh, and I can’t forget the music. Our favorite was sitting al fresco while enjoying the talented musicians playing music for you while you enjoyed the delicious food. I can go on and on about all our experiences because it was nothing short of wonderful. Overall Cuba stole a piece of each of our hearts and we look forward to returning again soon.
All our photos were taken by Clover’s dad, Erik Motta, which if you are interested in seeing portraits and additional documentation of Cuba, check him out.
