Hola, y beunvenidos a Holguin. Escuchando la primeras palabres de grupo Chango en Holguin!

Welcome to group Chango’s blog, where you can keep up with our latest (respectively) adventures! We spent the last week in Holguin! Orientation was packed full of Spanish with incorrect verb tense, corny camp games, and laughter shared all around.
Upon landing in Holguin we were met by our “guide” (but really our good friend) Ernesto and his business partner Evelina. We arrived to our Casa’s particulares in American made Ford cars from the Paleolithic era.
We soon split up to settle down and met back up with the group for a delicious lunch. We quickly learned much of the food in Cuba is tasty, but plenty of it is horrid as well!
Although we only spent less than a week in Holguin many of us have already fallen in love with Cuba, and are prepared to spend the next 3 months having fun and dancing our butts off!! Signing off for Chango
