Everyone needs to get out and see another part of the world. This Christmas I was fortunate to travel to Veradero, Cuba. The experience opened my eyes to the differences in the language, history and culture of the Cuban society. It made me appreciate Canada and helped me to "slow" down and enjoy the moment by practicing patience.

This "sandman" was made by a group from Montreal. They are improvising and keeping up with their winter traditions. Many Canadians travel to Cuba in the winter. In fact our tour guide told us that there are usually 55,000 Canadians in Cuba during the cold season!

Great Photo Kona - Canadians do love to go south for the winter, some people call them snowbirds!
