Photographer's Note

The road of stone

The hotel where we stayed is part of a hotel complex situated in the small islands of the northeastern region of Cuba. There is no resident population in these islands, only hotels. People who work in the hotels live in the city of Morón (for better understanding, see map here - use the zoom). To cross the sea and thus establish the communication between the small islands and the largest one, a road was built with stones arranged in the shallower parts of the ocean. It is a very solid road and has withstood many hurricanes. The trip takes 1 hour and a half. So the hotel staff spends 3 hours on the road every day.

The road is closely watched to prevent anyone not authorized.

We visited some places in the “real Cuba” where Cubans live. We were in a comfortable bus with air conditioning and our guide gave us a lesson about Cuba - History, geography, demography, politics... all in excellent English and very good French. He made jokes at times, it was very interesting and enjoyable. Everybody loved it!

When I have a little more time, I'll write a "travelogue" I think it's worthwhile.

In the Workshop, we can see the bus used in the trip.
