Off to the Shores of Havana - Again!

Every holiday season. Yes, that's right. Every holiday season, without fail. I'm talking about how often I frown upon discount cigars and turn instead to a trip to Cuba. As often as I can I venture into the Cuban waters and paddle my kayak to the shores of Havana. There I look for a light in a cafe known as Smirkin's Cove. They wait for me at the table. Two of them. They are in black and they are suffused with an aroma of sawdust and old wood and, of course, the smoke of burning tobacco. That is where I get my holiday gear and then I import it back to Florida and the Miami traffickers that I know so well.
