I opened the door to my balcony and walked outdoors to refresh in the ocean breeze and settle in for the sunset at sea. Then I poured an ideal cocktail, a Bacardi Rum, to effectively established sail and toast to my future new journey, the possibility to check out Cuba for the 1st time. Bacardi at first hailed from Santiago de Cuba prior to its revolution (of course, the 1 with Castro) and on my 2nd sail with Fathom, we were established to dock there the future morning.
To be straightforward, Cuba by no means was top of my checklist when I started my travels because of its confined entry and the usually read mantra “get there prior to the Us citizens ruin it.” Still my interest grew around the yrs by way of visits to Miami and the Florida Keys and exploring Cuban tradition and cuisine in Florida. Now living in the higher Florida Keys and in all probability beneath 100 miles from the shores of Cuba I can acknowledge to my enjoyment and my powerful curiosity on the eve of my own discovery. As I sat here observing this sunset at sea, I knew I had 1 a lot more sleep right up until I’d check out Cuba for my 1st time. The future day I’d be a sponge soaking up impressions of the tradition, cuisine, and people today of Cuba. I’d also appear to locate Bacardi’s alternative – Ron Santiago de Cuba (Anejo).
I poured a 2nd consume (the eyeglasses are compact) and kicked up my shoes as I stared off into the distance. I knew regardless of what took place the future day, it would be memorable, really memorable and I could generally toast to that. Indeed, Cuba for me, like a lot of of us Us citizens, is touring into the mysterious, and on the eve of my journey I realized that stays 1 of the greatest joys of journey.
Joyful Sunset Sunday, Craig
