|Key West Airport, December, 2000|
|National Farm in Central Cuba|
|Parque Nacional Cienaga de Zapata|
When we reached the South Coast, the National Park was a beautiful site. The meeting of the ocean with the land was one of beauty and just an awesome sight. The ocean and it's many colors blending with the green and browns of the land made for a very lovely and memorable picture. The Zapata Swamp is noteable because of the large number of birds. reptiles, plants and invertabrates that inhabit the swamp. Truely a valued and highly protected wetlands.
That was a really great experience for me, and one that I will never forget, but with a little bit of luck, I'll be returning, but this time I will get to spend 4 days in Old Havana to do some research of the places that Hemingway hung out and spent his time in Havana. Rum research is also a very big part of the trip as well. ;o)
