Is Cuba safe? The answer is simple – absolutely yes. Many people will shout on the streets: 

“Viva la Revolution! Cuba libre! No mafia!” 

However, even though no one is going to rob or attack you, travelling in Cuba is pretty much annoying because everyone will try to scam you. So it is better always to stay alert.

Disconnected in Cuba: The last country without Internet

Cuba

How the World would look like without the Internet? Hard question. My grandfather remembers the era when TV didn’t existed, my mother remembers times when there was no internet. Me and my generation remember nothing. It seems that we were born connected. However, there is a place in the Caribbeans that might challenge this modern mode of connected.

All truth about food in Cuba: How many beers you can buy for 0.04 USD?

Cuba

The booming tourism sector played its role – Cuba is a country of contrasts. If someone is looking for a really western-taste friendly experience, they can easily find spaghetti carbonara, tiramisu or latte in fancy cafes and restaurants with live Cuban music. However, they will probably die out of boredom dining only with other foreigners. That’s why this story is not about that kind of Cuban gourmet experience. Sorry. But, the truth is that, you cannot say anything about the country, if you haven’t tried what locals really do and eat. So I set out on a quest to expose what actual Cuban realities regarding food are. And from what I found out, the real Cuba is far from the fancy restaurants. Here is the naked truth what Cubans really eat.

Caribbean Vibes in Colombia: Drum festival of Palenque

Colombia, Culture

There is something primordial in drum music that echoes to the deepest essence of being. The wind was howling through my ears. The mototaxi was passing by through the fields with many grazing cows. The road without paving was sandy and bumpy. I was on my way to Palenque village where the annual drum festival was about to take place – one of the biggest Afro-Colombian culture event of the year.
