      ^That was the Hotel Nacional de Cuba (more about it later): https://www.hotelnacionaldecuba.com/

      I think this is the hotel. Hotel Inglaterra

      I was told by our Cuban guide (maybe bias) the hotel we were staying at (Saratoga) was the second nicest hotel in Havana,………but the nicest was the Inglaterra and for our next visit we should stay there.: http://www.hotelinglaterra-cuba.com/


      Trip Advisor doesn't agree with her.

      Little information,....Why we/I had a guide. Our guide told me that she had to be with me at all times during our visit (outside the hotel), but the Thai girlfriend could travel without her. A policy/rule for Americans but not Thai visitors. We/I went out without her on many occasions while there. Rules

        Handful of pictures but this time inside and on the grounds of Hotel Nacional de Cuba where tourists are welcome. Nice place but away from the center of activity.

          About the picture below.

          While looking around in the apartment I noticed a sculpture that had some tracks of a small bulldozer imbedded in it. I called attention to it and he was so delighted. With the help of our guide he told me how the Russians had sent over some heavy equipment but most of that equipment (including farm equipment) had deteriorated and repair parts were almost impossible to get. Farm and heavy equipment lay dormant in the Cuban fields today.

          I have a feeling the artist is doing well with friends like our guide who would help promote his work.

                        I forgot. It wasn’t any problem getting Cuban cigars back to the states from Cuba. I think at the time anyone traveling into the states could bring back as many Cuban cigars as they wanted for their use.

                        The problem I had was bringing Cuban cigars I purchased in Hong Kong back to the states. I would remove the bands and would place them in ziplock bags. Whatshername would bring the boxes and bands back in her luggage. Then I would distribute them to friends.

                        I told our guide that I want to purchase some cigars while in Cuba and she took me to a shop that only sold Cuban cigars and rum but I think they were only sold to Cubans. She told me to show her what I wanted and the amount I needed and she would get them for me. Later that evening she brought everything I wanted at a better price than what I would have had to pay at the shop if I was allowed to purchase them.

                        Back on track,………

                        Some of whatshernames pictures.

                        Our Cuban guide was great and knew how far she could push us. She was able to get us a table at El Cocinero (http://www.elcocinerocuba.com/en/) which is one of or was one of the most popular restaurants in Cuba. They refurbished an old cooking oil plant and modified it to a restaurant which was owned by a hand full of artists which the government held the majority of shares.

                        They did a great job refurbishing the building but even a better job with the food. Might be some of the best Cuban (prepared) food I had ever tasted and I grew up in Miami and was able to eat it often.

                        Little more about the food and OUR guests. It was nice. The food offered at this restaurant is something that the average Cuban cannot get. The Cuban government controls the fishing vessels but (some of) these fishing vessels will sell on the black market before they give their catch to the government.

                        Soooooo, the guide requested that she and the driver be allowed to sit with us for dinner. Of course we agreed. It was good company.

                        Some pictures of our meal are below. Besides the building itself the only picture I am sure of is the girlfriend’s mojito.
