To Cuba – Jardines de La Reina – to the Garden of the Queen - this is where our fishing adventures for this year, divided into two groups over two weeks, were meant to lead us. It feels good that the second 50% voucher from the Covid cancellation in 2020 is now settled. Our plan was to shoot a film about tarpon fishing during the two travel weeks. That's why my friend Vaidas joined us.
The participants of the second group arrived on May 7th and had to witness a terrible event in Havana right away. On Saturday evening, there was a gas explosion in the center of Havana at the historic Saratogo Hotel. The hotel was almost completely destroyed, and there were over 40 fatalities. Fortunately, our group was unharmed, and we were able to promptly leave Havana by bus and head to Jucaro.
