I arrived back to Havana Airport in an old car with my friend Nina, who was flying back to Denmark.
I got to my counter, and was getting excited that the flight was full so they were offering people a hotel for the night. I was quite hoping to stay an extra night, but they put my on the flight.
They didn’t actually tell me, so I got on the plane looking for seat 3C and checked five times when I saw it was one of the big seats. Check out my leg room!
The steward kept coming over and asking if I wanted a drink. Then we got breakfast on a tray with real knife and fork, while everyone else got a roll in a box.
After all the free drinks, I popped to the toilet. Just as I came out the air steward was standing outside the door with a glass of orange juice, and told me to take this juice to the pilot. “Me?! In there?!” I went into the cockpit, sat down on a fold down seat, and was offered a cup of English tea for an English girl. It was very interesting; they showed me how the plane flies; basically it’s just autopilot until they land. Easy.
I went back to my seat for landing, and we arrived safely in Costa Rica. I changed some of my dollars at the airport. I got 26,000 for $60, but then the taxi driver asked for $5, so I suppose you can pay in both here too. I arrived to my new casa run by Elizabeth.
They gave me some food, but I have been very tired all day so have just been watching films on the TV in my room. It’s been so nice to relax!
