Holiday snaps

I've put some photos of the trip on Flickr. Just hit the small photo to the right of the one you're viewing to move through them in order. There are also embedded comments - if you mouse over the photos, you'll see a small square box. Mouse over the box itself to read the comment.

Hope you like them as much as we loved taking them.

Magnifico! Thank you, thank you!

The two sunset images could be travel posters. The beach bars look like they came from a Corona ad.

Did all of the feral cats look like Lucky, the tan-and-black tiger-stripe shorthairs? Or were there a variety of appearances like, even, tuxedo kitties?

The pictures of people's homes are fascinating -- from the wires and the antennae they clearly have electricity and tv, even in rural areas, but one wonders from the lack of pavement what other things we take for granted (like sewage and water distribution and home heating fuel) are like.

Thanks, also, for introducing me to Flickr. I really like the mouse-over captioning ability.

Great -- thanks again!

Hi everyone - thanks for your comments!

Yes, Sherwood, every cat we saw was clearly from the same large extended family. We didn't see one of any other colour than the colours you see. (Husband did see one run across the *roof* of the restaurant one night, makes you wonder what the hell they get up to!)

As for your mention of electricity, it will be addressed in my next, and probably last, blog about Cuba, which I hope to get online tonight.

The pavement is largely some kind of asphalt or macadam and is *extremely* pockmarked and pothole-ridden.
