I went to Cuba, rented a car, and drove independently around the eastern third of the country. Along the way, I found families who were willing to host me in their homes.

My experiences in Havana, and beyond, are documented in the Chapter "Cuba Days" in Nothing Routine - A Quest for Discovery in Remote and Strange Places.
