Our holidays in Cuba last week were fantastic. Beautiful weather, spacious swimming pools and tasty food.
Cubans are very warm and nice people with “colorful” souls and full of friendliness.
We loved the contact with nature and culture.
My favourite purchase was a painting pad with paper made of banana tree leaves mixed with regular paper for white colour. The paper is much thicker and can easily be used for acrylic or oil paints, instead of canvas. Most of the local art is painted on this type of paper and the effect is really good – I would say unique.
Most of the items which are sold in the small gift stalls are handmade. The locals specialize in wood and leather products. Everything is very cheap from our perspective and I do regret we didn’t buy more for our friends and family.
Holidays in Cuba was a great idea. We will go back there one day.
