    Crocs in a small zoo

    We went some day for a walk. The weather was not that nice.....we went to the right, to the left and there it was a little zoo. We saw all kinds of animals in cages. We heard then that the animals would be placed to the island near the dolphins, but i believe they still not did it in 2000....

    The Indian Village, found half way up a steep hill off the main road travelling from Guardalavaca to Banes.

    It has been restored and shows exactly how the Indians lived and what all the different huts were used for.

    ...they might be a common sight to some of you but here in England tropical flowers don't seem to appreciate our climate!

    Every time we stopped no matter where we were, Cubans seemed to pop out from nowhere. Our toothpaste, soap and ciggie supplies were already running low so I couldn't take the time to zoom in properly on the lovely white bobble things on this cactus. If any of you out there know this type of cactus then I would appreciate the info!!

    If we came across any sideroads on our way to Banes we made a little detour to see what we could find. I took this picture because I was intrigued by the cactus flowers on this driveway...enlargement to follow.......

    Is this a sculpture of the Mother-in-Law?? No! I think it was meant to ward off evil (not invite it in!)

    The bathing area is to the right of the bridge and the dirty pots and linen washing area is on the left of the bridge.
