Leaving Cayo Coco

Last summer, on the island of Cayo Coco in Cuba, we stayed at an all-inclusive resort. The cons of doing so include interacting with the staff, all warm and friendly and accommodating, but with the realization that they have a one and a half hour bus ride to where they live their real lives after work. Then we see them the next day after another such ride and they're still the same: happy to see us and ready to answer to our any need. The pros: they're warm and friendly and accommodating, and the place is great! Cuba is full of contradictions .That's the best way I can explain it. One never, never knows just what is going on or how things really work in Cuba. So you talk to the people and get a little insight into what they think, what they feel about Americans, and where their lives are headed. But you just don't ever feel you've figured things out. This is a part of what makes us want to go back there. This shot is from the last morning there before we headed to Trinidad. Sony NEX 5n. We don't usually have this sort of thing in California, and I'm a sucker for sunsets and sunrises and dramatic clouds.
