We were a long way from the Bay of Pigs, but I think these young folk could smell it on us. They chased us for quite a while before finally giving up.
The scenery in Vinales was characterized by these Mogotes which incongruously jutted out from the otherwise very flat surroundings.
We stopped by a farmhouse to have something to eat with a local family. The food was very good as was the company of their two kittens. The family had a young girl who took it upon herself to ensure that the cats did not get in our way. It would have been good though, if someone had taught her how to pick up a cat properly...
One of the cats from the previous photo... probably thinking about possible escape routes through the mountains.
On the side of one of the Mogotes was painted the famous "Mural de la Prehistoria". It took 15 people 5 years to complete (so... say, if you only had 5 people, how long would it take?) and is described in the Lonely Planet guide as "either impressively psychedelic or monumentally horrific, depending on your point of view".
