Yesterday was a very busy day at the Rum Bar, but the subject of conversation kept coming up Cuba, fine rum and old cars. It is funny how that subject keeps coming up again and again at the bar. It is a shame that you can't just jump aboard a ferry and be there in 4 or so hours from here in Key West. It could be a day trip just like going to the Dry Tortugas. The Key West Express comes from Fort Myers is approximately 4 hours everyday and it is 10 miles closer to Havana. It is really time for this insane embargo if an island that really did less to Americans than Vietnam, USSR, or Germany, but we keep this stupid embargo going on and on for better than 50 years now.
The rums of Cuba are also pretty spectacular as well. I'm not just talking about the Havana Club that just about every rum lover wants, but the other fine rums like Santiago de Cuba, La Occidental, Ron Mulata de Cuba and Ron Veradero that are available to tantalize your palate.
I'm looking forward to the next adventure and all the new sights, boats, forts, cars and of course rums that the this world has to offer. Open your eyes as you travel and given the opportunity to taste the fine rums of Cuba when in any country outside of America. Don't pass up any opportunity to experience these rums. ;o)
