Hola Cuba!

Cuba, what a place ... fun facts for you all:

- Butterfly Jasmine is the official Flower of Cuba. It represents purity, rebelliousness and independence.  It flourishes in humidity and can be found in the wild along river banks and lagoons, it is also a favorite garden flower.
- The National tree of Cuba is the Royal Palm.  Reflective of the Cuban People it is a strong tropical tree, able to survive the storm force winds of hurricanes.
- The national Bird of Cuba is the Tocororo, or the Cuban Trogon. The colourful climbing bird's red white and blue plumage matches the colors of the flag.

I am currently enjoying Cuba Libre's in +32 degree weather.
I promise to bring sunshine back your way.
