With Cuba being such an unpopular destination for ex-pats it’s really difficult to find well written, up-to-date, informed, intelligent and knowledgeable blogs that will give the reader an accurate insight into the so-called “real” Cuba.
In my opinion head and shoulders above everyone right now is Conner Gory and her blog [a href=“http://hereishavana.com/”]Here is Havana[/a].
Her writing is not for everyone. If you’ve only visited Cuba once… or you haven’t been there for quite some time… or you’re uncomfortable with honest, in-your-face-observations with “adult” language… or you’re only interested in resort life… or you’re simply not compelled to learn about a side of Cuba that is very Havana-centric then you won’t enjoy this.
For anyone though who is interested in seeing the “other” side of Cuba in general and Havana in particular then some of her musing will undoubtedly be fascinating. Lastly, she’s also hilarious.
Here’s a few entries that are geared towards travellers… [a href=“http://hereishavana.com/2013/06/13/series-1-a-visitors-practicum/”]A Visitor’s Practicum[/a], [a href=“http://www.vergemagazine.com/work-abroad/blogs/777-diy-dining-in-havana”]DIY Dining In Havana[/a], [a href=“http://hereishavana.com/2011/02/28/trip-tips-havana-independently/”]Havana Independently[/a] and [a href=“http://hereishavana.com/2011/06/23/conners-cuba-rules/”]Conner’s Cuba Rules[/a].
