I stayed over night at Paul and Mary’s house and at the end, I didn’t even get to sleep because we only had little time to nap so I decided to watch TV and waited until the cab comes. They got up really early that day because our flight was at 6:20 in the morning and we had to leave Paul’s house at about 4:00. Everyone was tired and excited at the same time because it was a first time to Cuba for the 4 of us.
Once we got to the airport, I was surprised that there was soo many people taking the same flight with us. Anyhow, we got on the plane at about 6:00 and I almost fell asleep right away. From napping on and off, I did take some videos and made a Pre Day1 video for youtube.
The timing was perfect after my long nap on the plane, I got up and we were almost there :p Once we got off the plane, we could feel the hot temperature right away, hot hot hot… The airport was quite small and it didn’t take us long to go through the whole customs stuff then we headed outside. The bus was right there at the front door and there were people handing out free beer for us already, god, free beer!!! We got on the bus and started heading to our hotel, but too bad the air conditioning wasn’t strong enough and we were sweating like crazy.
Once we got to our hotel, we all decided to take a shower first before we started our little adventure there. God, it was soo hot and I still remember after like 30min of the shower, we were all wet with sweat again. But you know what, everything was free so I just had to start ordering drinks, haha. Oh oh, and of course we needed food :p We had our lunch at buffet inside the resort and the food was really alright, at least not like what I was told :p
We did take a nap after lunch because we didn’t really have much sleep. We were walking around and trying to get a good look at the place. We did find a lot of interesting stuffs like lizards everywhere, hehe. The resort was quite huge and lots of things to see. The pool was nice and the BEACH was really nice. So most of our afternoon was to explore the place. Dinner was at the same place we had lunch and of course, it was all drinking, drinking and drinking. I don’t even remember how many drinks I had that day but at the end of the night, I was pretty hammered. But oh well, that’s what I was there for wasn’t it :p
