Cuba Day 6

I woke up early. Somehow, despite the roosters crowing at dawn again, I had managed to sleep through it this morning. However, I still needed to be up at 6:30 to have plenty of time before the taxi arrived. I rolled out of bed and got ready to go, then asked Susana to turn on […]

Cuba Day 5

Ahhhhhh beach day. I woke up early to the sound of the roosters at 5:10 in the morning. They didn’t let up until 8a. It was insanity. I lounged in bed on my phone until it was time for breakfast at 8:15. Having Internet in bed was such a luxury, I honestly could’ve laid there […]

Why is this a perk? As an authorized user on a AAdvantage credit card, I’m able to get into the Admirals Club, American’s […]
