up at 6.,30 this morning to get the bus to habana...bus didnt arrive until 7.45...due at 7.15..we were convinced that they had forgotten again...but they didnt...we were the only 2 on the bus..was very nice...

bus took 6 hours...driver stopped off to buy about 30 mangos on the way.very funny..he gave us one too....

we got back to habana at about 1.30 and we didnt know what to do..i refused to be bored again. we went to the cemetery which is the 3rd biggest in the world-apparently it is less than a euro to be buried there so cubans have no probs...

a security guard took it upon himself to come and try and help us...we told him that we didnt want his help but that was quickly ignored and at the end of our time there he tried to ask us for money!!the cheek...but this time we stood our ground and said that we werent payin him and walked off.he had no ground to stand on cos he had no right to charge us..we were chuffed..

we went for a drink afterwards...a softdrink of course and when i looked at my change...i saw that they were shortchangin me so i let them know..and they begrudingly gave us the money...2 up for us...

then for the last step..we were walkin along the road...greeted by the cubans in their usual sleezy way...but this time..i replied to them..and told them how rude they were in so many words..i felt very brave until i saw that he was carryin a saw and i quickened up my pace a little..he was so startled by a back answer that he didnt know what to say...it felt good to get one back on them....

we went for a lovely meal in the italian that night...went to bed very pleased wit ourselves...we learned how to deal with the cubans 2 weeks later...go us!!!
