Hussled and Hassled in Havana

After an eventful first night in Havana, I woke up the next day excited to begin exploring the city. I couldn't wait to ride in a classic car, admire the architecture,......

    Havana is definitely an "interesting" place. I am usually really good at saying no to people, but I struggled in Havana. Plus, it's harder when I travel with my husband, because he is more of a softie than I am, and way less suspicious. As much as we wanted to help a guy out, it was really foolish to go with him to that cigar "store". I'm just glad nothing bad happened & hopefully next time my husband listens to me!

    It may surprise to know that when I was there in 2001 things were only slightly different, and I speak Spanish so approaching us was even easier. Hopefully things change one day soon

    Havana was exhausting for us as well. We stayed in Playa Jibacoa instead of Havana, which made all the difference I think. I will definitely go back to Cuba, but after yelling at a boy in Havana during a day trip (not my finest moment), I will try to visit other less touristy towns next time.

    Ditto the thanks. I would say, based on what I see, that women tend to get trivialized more when they are attractive. And is a problem woman to woman, not just man to woman. It is an interesting problem. In fiction, we can address the unevenness of real life. Thanks for being aware. That helps.

    Don't pack too many clothes, it will be stinking hot in the summer, but fun nonetheless. Do, however, bring a cotton sweater for the air-conditioned restaurants, shops and hotels - they keep them freezing! :)

    Absolutely Lisa and Mark. 5 minutes a day?? What can be done and how do you build real relationships on that timeline?

    It can be frustrating when people just don't understand the value and time commitment. They just want to push out some content and walk away until the next day to rinse and repeat.

    Enjoy your weekends!

    Value comes from actually contributing thoughtful meaningful substance to a topic or niche... For me, that's not easy. It's work.

    You have to dig for the nuggets of experience others can benefit from, and as you pointed out, be motivated and willing to learn new things everyday to stay on top of your game. This alone takes at least 10 minutes a day :o

    Thanks for your thoughts, Lisa - wishing you and yours a safe holiday weekend : )
  • Lisa Buben

    Mark, it sure does take more than 5 minutes per day - whenever I see posts that say even less than an hour a day I become quite skeptical. It's not just the responding and pushing out content, it's keeping up with all the changes on each social site and interacting on each as well. Great post!
