Traveling to Cuba to Find the Heart of Havana

My trip to Cuba was a bit to the left of legal. I visited two weeks before relations between the United States, and Cuba was restored, meaning I had to plan everything without any of my usual resources, like travel websites, where, if anything went wrong, we were, more or less, screwed.
