The day started with a cloudy sky and our half day tour with a new local tour guide in Varadero. Firstly we headed to so they called a crystal cave and we thought it was supposed to be amazing. We had to wait a little because we got there a little to early, so took a small walk around the area, then we found out that we had to pay to bring our cameras inside and we had to leave our bags in a locker… Anyways, at the end, we didnt bring anything inside but a flash light.
Once we were inside the cave, it wasn’t anything like we were told, we saw crystals and stuffs but it was soo dark, wet, muddy and dirty… and we were told that there was only one kind of creatures that lived in the cave, Cockroaches… I was like, what the fuck… So while we were inside, we were just pointing the flash light to the ground and the walking was very long. The whole feeling was like walking under a sewer… Anyways, just a reminder not to go there if you have a chance to go to Cuba :p
After the cave thing, we were brought to a local market just to see how the locals live. The food market was like the market in Hong Kong 30 years ago, dirty, smells and flies everywhere… Of course we didn’t stay long because the look from the local people was very weird… Anyhow, it was a good experience after all
We went back to our resort for lunch after some gifts shopping at a shopping center close to our resort. We sat down and thought we could finally relax since we finished the 3 days tour then something happened while we were having our lunch. A tourist who sat 2 tables away from us had a heart attack and died in front of our eyes… There were people doing CPR and stuffs but he didn’t make it… Our mood was very down and we decided to spend sometime on the pool and beach to cheer the mood up after everything that happened.
At the end, we made it a short night after our dinner, watched a show in the resort, spent sometime in the disco and played chess with Mary and Estella then call it the night.
