I’m writing this blog because it’s easier than facebooking everyone, and it might be quite funny. It is mainly a diary for me and Ian Bennett to look back on afterwards and also gives me a chance to be a bit pretentious (in an ironic way, of course). Remember, I only got an A in English Lit and comma placement is complete guesswork, so don’t be too harsh.
For those of you who don’t know him, Ian and I have been best friends since we were 9. He’ll be with me for the first 3 weeks of this little adventure – It seems getting permission from his girlfriend, Ruth, was a lot easier than getting permission from Marg Johnson. The itinerary is pretty straightforward: for the first 2 weeks we are travelling from Mexico City to Cancun, and for the last week we are enduring Havana and the west of Cuba. After that I take a 2-week return trip to Santiago de Cuba and fly out to Colombia to make a difference in Medillin.
