Day Five- Visiting the Cemetery and More
If you are just catching up, here are days three and four.
Ah, feeling much better after finally getting some SLEEP! We were up early to catch a couple long buses to the cemetery, but we were lucky enough to either get seats (Mom and Yolanda) or get a standing spot near the window (me). I was able to take a lot of pictures on the way, so I was happy 🙂
First we went to the Sephardic cemetery. Seeing Pepe’s burial site certainly solidified his passing for me, but I also felt him there. We sat there for quite awhile and I just listened to mom and Yolanda tell stories and chat. We visited burial sites of various family members and my mom told me a short story about each of them and her memories of them.
The bus did eventually come, which took us back to El Capitolio. We got off there and headed to Los Nardos for lunch. A Cuba tradition! It’s a dark, little restaurant, located on the third floor of a building facing the Capitol.
These guys wanted their picture taken so why not make them blog famous 🙂
It was a long day, but another good one. We ended the day with rice, beans, beef, and plantains before ending up on the balcony and falling hard into sleep. The following day was our last in Havana- visiting Miramar!
