F: Hi everyone! Anita here. On today’s programme I’m going to tell you about the week I’ve just spent in Cuba.
We arrived on Sunday, and on Monday morning we went on our first visit, this was the National Gardens. These are full of trees and flowers and there was a fantastic waterfall that everyone stopped to admire, although the rainforest exhibition was the bit I liked best.
On the second day we went on a trip in a sailing boat to swim with dolphins. We had a very exciting time – we had to wear special electronic arm-bands to keep off any sharks! Noone saw any…fortunately! We had the option of travelling to a river valley in the countryside west of Havana the following day; I felt a bit worried as the programme included crossing a range of hills by horse and I haven’t ridden much. We met a noisy motorbike on the track, but I managed to stay on somehow!
On Thursday there was a day’s visit to the capital city: I loved the atmosphere of the shops and restaurants. We went to a theatre to see a musical in the afternoon – luckily not a serious play, which would be difficult for me, though my Spanish is improving.
On Friday, we went on a visit to a farm. I thought we were going to see coffee being grown, but in the end we went to a farm that produces sugar. It was OK though. We had lunch there. It was quite a celebration with guitars and delicious food.
Saturday was free for us to explore. I found a street full of jewellery workshops and bought a few rings to take back as presents for people back home. I was sorry later that I hadn’t bought any of the beautiful leather belts back! Maybe next time
