I quickly go to the toilet and as I pass the galley I realise the service hasn’t started because the flight attendant is busy demolishing her own lunch with gusto. When eventually the service begins, the flight attendant takes out a tray from the trolley with small ramekins of nut. But somehow she can’t be arsed to do a drinks run before the main meal service. So she places the tray back inside the trolley and starts distributing the trays with the meal instead.
Hey, guess what, it’s exactly the same crap they served on the previous flight. Although clearly there have been a few extravagant upgrades and the green salad now also includes two pieces of zucchini while the grease blob otherwise known as a croissant now also comes with a grilled tomato. The flight attendant is already about the saunter off when I call her back and tell her I think I’d rather have the ramekin with the nuts, thanks very much…

I think I wouldn't visit Cuba again because I find the conditions the people are forced to live in simply deplorable. There are many pour countries that I have visited in my life, but never have I been to a place where the poverty has also depraved the population of any form of human dignity. I just thought it was very sad. And no matter how much the authorities try to impose the image of the happy-go-lucky Cuban socialist upon you, everybody just seems really fed up.
