Dear Lillian (and other friends) -
Okay, okay, I’ve been holding out on you – I’m fully aware. I’m currently flying and still haven’t told you where exactly it is I’m headed. So, drum roll please…I’m off to Cuba for the next week.
But, before you freak out, let me be clear: I’m totally doing it on the up and up and am heading there legally with the folks at the Los Angeles World Affairs Council. In case you can’t tell, I’m beyond excited. Friends have described it to me like a 50s fossil – a culture frozen in time with amazing cars, great hospitality, and the best rum ever, but with really horribly crappy internet.
For the occasion, I say we dedicate this month’s Last Fridays to Cuba and some of our favorite Cuban food and drink like these Yucca Fries with Mojo Mayonnaise. And, of course, Lills, I’m gonna rely on you and your cocktail skills to make a fabulous Mojito. Sound good?
So, excuse me while I head off to the island to the south for the next week. My internet connection is going to be pretty much nonexistent but I’ll keep you posted on Instagram and here on the site when and if I can.
Cheers to adventures and Mojitos!
xoxo ~ Aida
