República de Cuba - Holiday Snaps

This most certainly proves how long its actually been since I did any real proper blogging! These are some of my snaps from when  I went to Cuba in June!
 
I know not everyone is always interested in posts like this, particularly in a blog that focuses on fashion and beauty, but I think this comes under lifestyle, and I wanted to share some images of this amazing and beautiful country.

Cuba is a financially poor country, but it is so rich in culture and beauty. I had heard so much about the people of Cuba and they didn't disappoint. They are friendly, welcoming, incredibly gracious and proud of their heritage. Seeing how few material goods the people have but recognising that they almost accept that and don't try to compete with their friends and neighbours, is quite humbling, and made me question some of my values. (For a while - It hasn't stopped me shopping sadly!)

Anyway these are just a selection of my holiday snaps - I didn't think you'd appreciate the not-so-flattering bikini shots!
