Today we take a trip to the east of Havana. We must pass through the tunnel below the bay, and the way is very beautiful.








On the highway, going down towards Santa Marķa del Mar Beach.  The large building in the background is the Hotel Tropicoco.

To the east of Havana there are also many beautiful beaches, like Santa Maria del Mar.  Here is Santa Maria beach.






Today we dine at La Terraza restaurant. At this place Ernest Hemingway was many times, and he usually ate there with Santiago, his Cuban skipper of the boat Pilar. Now this is a very visited place, normally it is full of American tourists, like today.











Hungry customers sit patiently to dine on some of the freshest seafood available...









...Now this is fresh.











This view of the Cojimar River is seen from La Terraza Restaurant.











Now we return home to Havana
