Photographer's Note

Maybe you've heard before that the food in Havana or in Cuba in general is very bland. Well, here's another bit of information for you - finding food is like trying to find a needle in a haystack!

Now don't get me wrong...I absolutely loved my experience in Havana. Proof being that most people who travel to Cuba stay at a resort outside of Havana for 7 days and take 1 day to travel to Havana. Whereas I spent 4 nights and 5 days in Havana in a local Casa :)

But finding food was difficult. Proof is here in this photo. See where the lady is standing, see the TINY sign on the arched door, thats the sign that you have to look for while walking the streets of Havana.

Its SOOO hard to notice that sign. Those are basically the only spots to get a glass of juice, eggs, cup of coffee etc....the locals know all these spots, but as for tourists...no.

You CAN walk down to the 'touristy' area of downtown Havana and pay expensive prices at a restaurant, but its always so busy and it's not the true experience. The problem with that as well is that you're not always in that area, Havana is quite large.

And when we did find a corner store selling goods, it was mostly out of stock, that's another problem thats often encountered too :)

Oh the trials and tribulations of traveling to Cuba!
But you have to love it!!

Thanks for looking
