Just wanted to say this again to my visitors. I'm not replying on my blog during the #atozChallenge, but I do read every one of your comments. Sometimes, if you have a reply email, I answer questions or continue the discussion. I love questions, and I love it when someone adds to the information on the post.
|Here's to a great AtoZ!|
Join in the FUN.
This year I traveled to Cuba. You know, it's that little island that's spitting distance from Florida and should not be visited without special dispensation. I wanted to see it before MacDonald's arrived. I'm so glad I did. I learned a lot and I met some wonderful people. It seems they like us. Now there's a change!
I'll add a short T/F quiz to each post the same as I did last year about Burma, and I'll post the answers to the questions the following day.
There was no quiz for M. Yay! So here are a couple of pictures that sum up the atmosphere of Cuba.

N is for National Hotel
|The Lobby's not too shabby.|
|This is behind the hotel at dusk. Sorry bad picture.|
The National Hotel is where anybody who's important stays. I didn't stay there. Draw your own conclusions. But it is a beautiful place to wander the grounds and roam the areas the rich and famous have frequented. Here are some of the pictures I took that day while pretending to be among the elite group. Just kidding.
|There is one room with walls of posters. Each one has images of celebrities who stayed or performed here, and each poster covers a decade.|
Your T/F Quiz for N:
These were notable guests at the National Hotel in sixties: Johnny Weismuller, Edward VIII, Jack Dempsey, Tom Mix, José Mujica, Buster Keaton, Errol Flynn, and the mobsters Santos Traficante and Meyer Lansky.
