New Years in Havana

Forgot to mention in my last post….

I’ll be in Havana for new years!!

Sumeet and I will there from Dec.30-Jan.10th. We’re not doing the resort thing this time. We’ll be staying at a local Casa (b&b).

Well it’s been over a month since I last wrote anything, I know – I’m such a slack-ass.

I attended my first VACHE HERF. VACHE = Vancouver area cigar herfing ensemble, HERF = when a bunch of people get together and smoke cigars.
It was pretty cool, people from all walks of life it seems. Each of the guys gave me a ‘welcome to the club’ cigar too! A great bunch of guys! Check out the official VACHE website for pics and other stuff. BTW, my gallery of cigars can be seenhere.

The amazing thing is that it’s self narrated by Tupac, from some interviews he did shortly before his death. The guy really touched a lot of people and still does today.

How bout those Canucks!!?? Continue reading Waaaazzzzzzuuuuuup!
