With the surge of travel to Cuba, my girlfriends and I also thought it was a good idea to take the trip. My husband traveled their earlier this year for his buddy's 40th birthday so a couples trip to Cuba wasn't going to be likely so I completely jumped on the opportunity to fly out with the girlies.
What I was most surprised by was the population ratio of Afro-Latinos!! Not being able to use a credit card or debit card in addition to no access to ATM's was definitely tough but what really stood out to me was that there were soooo many Afro-Latinos everywhere! I don't know exact stats but you would almost think Afro-Latinos make up the majority of the population if not close. One my girlfriends also on the trip is originally from Florida where there is a large population of Cubans, and she shared the same shock and surprise as me!
The great presence of Afro-Latinos was a learning for me and because I speak the language fluently I was able to engage with locala and ask the interview style of questions I am very much known for 😄 ha!! Cuba was by far one of the best trips I've been on and I tend to travel pretty often. It was a great cultural experience.
