I spent the day looking for a warm vacation spot for us, and I found it. I could give a clinic on what online vacation websites do wrong (don't get me started on Expedia
again), but in the end it was all for the best. A week's all-inclusive vacation in Holguin for all four of us for a price that's cheaper than what we could get in Florida without meals. Dirt cheap. Hello, sun! We leave Sunday. Update
: We travelled to Cuba a couple of years ago and loved it (apart from the shark attack
- I'm not kidding). I've heard some of the arguments pro and con about vacationing in a place with such poverty. Some say it's just wrong; others point to the benefits to the people there; that sanctions and boycotts don't work. I don't know where I stand, and in the end expediency won out over certainty. It's something I'm thinking about, though. That's living in today's world. Even a trip to Wal-Mart
(or Cuba - never thought Wal-Mart and Cuba would appear in the same sentence, did you?) can involve some serious moral choices these days.
