Ike is on his way .... arriving tonight.
I have received word from Havana that they are preparing for a big blow. Already electical interruptions are being experienced and it’s raining pretty good.
Some Casa Particulare operators are directing their guests to book into hotel. Evacuations, no doubt, have begun in areas.
Last week,Gustav did some serious damage to La Isla de Juventud (Isle of Youth) in western Cuba.
Ike could bring tremendous damage as it looks like it may run right up the spine of Cuba.
As for me ... the date is set and the flight is booked.
I depart Sept 25th for a week in Havana.
In these days of airline cutbacks due to the price of fuel, Cubana Airline still has a generous baggage allowance.
I will be allowed two checked bags at 23 kg each and a carry on of 5 kg for a total of 51 kg.
For those that are metrically challenged that’s 112.2 pounds.
If you are planning a trip to Cuba don’t forget the furry ones as well as the people.
