❤️ On Falling in Love in Cuba ❤️

We couldn’t have been in Cuba more than an hour or so before realizing this trip was going to be really different, really special. Before turning in our first night, we both commented “the people are all so helpful to each other here“. I guess that is one positive outcome of living with socialism for 50+ years.

We’ve traveled to other polite places before (hello, Thailand!), although their kindness seems to be less sincere and more of a cultural influence. In Cuba, the people we met genuinely wanted to know more about us. They also freely helped each other. And that was how we ended up falling in love in Cuba.
