The Cuban flag was created by Narciso López in 1849, and put together by Emilia Tolón. The colors represented the aspiration for freedom that all men share: red, white and blue. Three blue stripes represent the states into which the island was divided at that time; two white stripes imply the force and dedication of the idealistic soldier for independence; a red triangle for equality, fraternity and liberty, and the blood shed in the pursuit of freedom; a white five-sided star, inside the red triangle, as a symbol of freedom between nations. Truly, you will know the history of a nation by their flag. If you want to know more about Cuba first hand, I’d love to help you plan your journey through an amazing country.

Did you know? ● It's been nearly 50 years since new parts were imported to Cuba in the early 60's.
● Until last October, Cuban residents were forbidden from buying and selling vehicles without the government's permission.
● There are several functioning and preserved 1929 Ford Model T cars in Cuba. Many of those found in the U.S. and other countries are severely aged, badly rusted or even beyond repair.
● The repairs of these cars are left to owners.
● Many repairs are cobbled together with household items or homemade replacement parts.

Let’s talk about humidity for a minute. You either love it or hate it. My hair is a completely different “animal” in humidity. It shrinks, it frizzes, it gets to be a real mess 🙄. I don’t hate it though. It gives my hair volume and the illusion of thickness 🙌🏾
