Bottled water is freely available in Cuba according to me friends who go each year. Food; not so much.

I'd much rather be stuck in Cuba than Sudbury-I know I've lived in Sudbury.

If anyone is booking a trip to the Antarctic through a travel agency, they're too stupid to count.

Last time I was in Cuba, bottled water was a buck a bottle, and beer was $0.85
so not so tough a choice. Just say'n.

That's defensive armor and weaponry only!

Plus it's been so frigging cold lately I thought the penguin was a good choice. I have one that's dressed as the Grim Reaper, should I change?

Yah, I know. Didn't say it was free, just freely available. You can't afford a buck, you shouldn't be flying, .............Was thinking maybe the all inclusive might kick in. Guess not.

I watched the video in the LINK. They where in the airport part of the night, & then went
back to their hotels in the morning...& I'm sure there were drinks and food in the hotels.

Much of the food in Cuba isn't great (lot'sa cabbage & fish) but it's
a far cry from K Rations. Once back at the hotels...lots of food and
drink.

Me too!!! Back 25yrs ago I waited five days due to ice fog for my time out,
as the ceiling was too low for the planes to land.

If I never see another camp for the rest of my life, I'll remain relatively happy.
