What happened…

Andrew writes: There ended up being a change in plans today, and it was OK. We weren’t in a rush to leave Gibara, because we expected the ride to be really short. And it was…distance wise…yet, I guess in my head I wasn’t expecting it to be one hill after another again. I thought Holguin was in the “plains” of Cuba. So when we did reach Holguin, we rode past the parks that Amanda describes, and found the bus station, and it wasn’t even lunchtime yet.

I made the executive decision to hop on a bus to Sancti Spiritus today, instead of spending money on a Casa in Holguin and then “wasting” tomorrow all day on the bus. So we went for another ride through the city to see the sights (there weren’t any as far as I could tell), and then hung out at the bus station for several hours until our bus finally came at 11pm. Hopefully we can both get some sleep on the bus over the next 7 hours as it drives to SS.
