Travel through Cuba not limited to backpacking is so many things - but above all, (and I will surely fail to impress upon you) is the uniqueness of it. With a history dominated by controversy involving most notably the USA and Soviet Union, Cuba has not been without violent incident and struggle. In more recent history these incidents made all the more acute and rightly or wrongly by an individual man called Fidel Castro and certain others outside Cuba - men who have come and gone (Castro remains *), and other less known individuals making up the army and another individual we all know as Che. The revolutionaries that once and for all freed Cuba from Batista. Some think he [Castro] is dead others read that which he has had written from his hospital bed. But this is not a story of the History of Cuba this is a story of Cuba today (may june 2008).
*Summer 2016 it could be that Fidel Castro is dead.

I travelled alone on this trip and yet I never really did. I met some great comrades of the backpacking kind from just a few days in. My itinerary was not fixed. I had hopes of diving a lot and didn't. I ended up with the following route; Havana,Maria la Gorda,Vinales, Cayo Levisa, Trinidad, Santiago de Cuba, Baracoa,Varadero and Havana.
I mad a brief tour of el Capitol which looks like the white house (the dome at least) and had a run the next morning which made me late for my bus to Maria La Gorda.

I was jet lagged and so I won't get into Havana yet.
