Cuba Trip - Day 6

We hit a lot of touristy spots throughout the whole trip. The purpose of the trip was ostensibly to bring Hanukkah to the Jews of Cuba - photos of that in a later post. But one of the highlights of the trip was during our next to last day in Havana. Our tour guide was friendly with a family that currently occupied the home she grew up in, and they had become her surrogate family. We were invited into their home, so we had a chance to see how the average (real) Cuban family lived. The neighborhood looked a bit rough, but the people couldn't have been more hospitable.
