Every meal included rice and beans but we usually had a choice of pork, chicken or fish…and sometimes shrimp and lobster.
rare to see Coca-Cola in Cuba…but TuKola was offered at every meal
we got cold rich chocolate milk at the chocolate museum
we call them blackeyed peas…Cuban call them “little faces” peas
a “Welcome Mojito” was offered at our hotels and at most restaurants
“bathed in mil islas sauce” = “garnished with Thousand Island dressing”
something smells good on our hike up the mountain!
poor Garcia will be our guest of honor
