Day Six: Miramar , Hotel Nacional Y Caminando
Our sixth day in Cuba was a little different than any other time we have been to Cuba. My mom wanted to check out a new place, so we headed to Miramar, which is known for grand houses, embassies and hotels. We had to walk a bit to catch a different bus, and then had about an hour bus ride.
Don’t take those local drug stores for granted!
And then we walked around and marveled at the buildings, most of which are currently being used as embassies. And on the walk back, we passed the aquarium. How cool is that?! You can see the tortoises from the bridge.
Back in Vedado, we stopped for pizza and una cerveza. Yolanda warned us that when eating pizza, be careful with the cheese. There isn’t much cheese or dairy product in Cuba, so you never know what imaginative alternative you are munching on.I mean….it tasted like cheese?
After pizza, we headed to El Hotel Nacional to soak up the sun and have another cerveza with the most incredible view. This hotel is absolutely incredible and, in my opinion, the most beautiful one I’ve seen in Cuba.
Oh, and as you can see- I got SUPER burned sitting out there for an hour. We aren’t sure how that happened! It peeled about a week later, ick.
Later that night, we packed for a beach trip! Coming up 🙂
