Impressions from a trip to cuba in february 2018

A typical trip for tourists in Havana: Driving with an old cuban car through the historic district guided by a Cuban with a cowboy hat. In Cuba tourism is one of the branches where you can earn most of the money. That's what our hosts told us. We enjoyed the talks with the young couple and their friends a lot. They really gave us a look behind the cuban scenes...

And all they saw was tourists...
Trinidad can give you a picture of how mass tourism can change the behaviour of the locals: The whole town seemed to be like a huge market place where people constantly try to make a deal with you: no matter if they want to offer you an accomandation, a lift to another city, sightseeing tours to waterfalls, sell you selfi sticks, or simple just asking if you want to give them some money. Everything seems to be a business. It was hard to find someone that would tell you how they think about the world.
