I had a chance to visit Cuba Nostalgia today (Sunday, the last day of the three-day festival of Cubanness) for the first time ever. The weather was hot, dry, smoky, the sky tinged with an odd orange glow. But the food was great.
And Cuba Nostalgia itself was great. And right now I’m kicking myself for not taking my camera, but that’s an old, bad habit of mine. I could be on a once-in-a-lifetime vacation or experience of some sort and I’d forget the camera. Oh well.
So many different things were going on and–oh, did I mention the food was great? I got a chance to meet Val and Gusano from Babalu Blog (BTW they’ve got TONS of pictures and videos from Cuba Nostalgia). We didn’t get a chance to chat much; they were busier than heck, getting folks to sign the petition for the release of Cuban political prisoners (please sign it yourself, just click here now).
All I can say for now is, the food was great. Er, I mean, I can’t wait till next year…
