|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.

O is for Obispo Street
Obispo Street is in the heart of Cuidad Vieja (the old city), and I was lucky enough to stay smack in the middle of it. The first day I stepped out onto my balcony at ten in the morning, the street was jammed with people (no cars are allowed on Obispo Street). That night about twelve hours later the street was still jammed. People were talking and laughing. From each direction music blared and it was beautiful. I had dinner. I went for a stroll and joined the fun. At midnight, the view from my balcony was exactly the same as it had been earlier. At two o'clock in the morning. . .exactly the same. Do these people never tire? The answer was yes. About three or four all is quiet. Here's a short video of my balcony overlooking Obispo Street at the wee hours of the morning. After all, I wasn't about to sleep.
