Rhumba beats and good eats

You're going to Cuba? Great! Take food. That was the advice from friends when I told them about our upcoming trip. There was universal agreement that if we were going to survive for a whole week, my suitcase had to be half full of cereal, dried fruit and granola bars. Of course, this was a challenge in the making.  Forget the groceries, I ramped up on research instead.

We built a Cuban sandwich of our own - a spicy weekend in Havana stuffed between four days at a luxurious all inclusive in Varadero.  Add a helping of history, a pinch of the mystical and a dash of neighborhood dance party and we had a tempting trip so good we could taste it.
