Day 11 - Trinidad (Cuba)

Blas (the CASA owner, who used to be a senior civil engineer)

Highly recommend it, as he is a wonderful person who speaks good english. I had a good time chatting with him about the education system in Cuba and other things. For instance: It is easier to get into medicine faculty than engineering faculty in University, as the govt wants to have more doctors.
