Moa

A journal entry from: The Americas

Moa is probably the ugliest town in Cuba - and we got stuck there...

Since there was no public transportation (for tourists) to Moa, we did as the Cubans do and hopped on a truck. It is a common way to get around here (everybody stands on the back of the truck) but the drivers are actually not allowed to take tourists with them. Luckily they don't care about it that much though. It was defintely an experience! Actually we wanted to go together with the Belgian guys but they didn't manage to get up at 5 in the morning...

Well, the only problem was that we couldn't get away from Moa anymore because there was no transportation from there either (only buses for Cubans) so we were really glad when suddenly the 4 Belgian guys walked into the bus station again. Together we found a taxi that would take us to Banes.
