Museum de la Revolution, Flight back to Austria

Our last assignment in Cuba was initially planned for our very first day in Cuba – the “Museum de la Revolution”, a place for Cuban history – and a little Cuban propaganda. It used to be the Presidential Palace until Fulgencio Batista decided to flee the country on the first of January in the year of 1959. Fortunately the information’s are bilingual and some interesting pictures and films are on display. Most interestingly for me, behind the building the “Granma”, the yacht which took Fidel Castro and his revolutionaries from Mexico to Cuba found its last haven.

After a final lunch at the Prado, we took a taxi back to the airport to smoke a our last Cuban Cigar – Fidel Castro’s favorite Cohiba Lancero and enjoy a bottle of Havana Club Añejo 7 Años.

Viva la Revolution!
