I couldn’t even really get into the whole resort-spirit when I was there. And I tried. All the workers treated me like a lucky Cuban on a state vacation and when I tried to give a tip to the bartender at the pool bar he looked at me and said ‘asere, que bola?’
Dude probably lives in a house that costs ten times more than the one I live in when in Cuba, so fair enough I guess.
Anyway I truly loved being a yuma for a week, lol. Was great getting away from Cuba. Needed that so badly. So I’ll be sniffing around this forum looking for tips on which resort to escape to next time around. I hear there are some that have guests who bring their own bacon. If I can pick that up I’ll get in line behind someone like that, pad him or her on the shoulder, point to the bacon and say ‘my fren, what flies? Bacon for me?’
