Best unemployed lunch ever!

Emily and I took a stroll a few blocks from our hotel and stumbled across the 'Buena Vista Social Cafe' - named after the band (I'm assuming, as there were band pics all over the place -- almost as many as there were of Che). Second story with a small balcony. Dark. Old photos of men, women and Castro smoking cigars. Paint peeling off the ceiling. A few ceiling fans spinning slowly. Beat up leather couches. We had an apetizer and then main course: Laphroaig (10 yr) and a delicious cuban cigar (Romeo y Julieta No. 2 Tubo) - which was my first actual Cuban cigar ever. I'm not really a cigar fan, but this was smoooooooth. Nice to be sipping single malt and smoking cigars at noon - I could get used to being unemployed :)
