2/5/2024: In "Support of the Cuban people", we hired a car to take us to some hilly area to the southwest of Camaguey. We left our casa particular at 5:30 in the morning to drive on some bumpy roads, nothing that a small car couldn't handle driving slowly. We hired a guide to show us around the sendero de las aves where there were so many birds. The crows in Cuba have a really weird call, and they were everywhere along with a bunch of other birds. I thought this was the nicest place that we visited in Cuba.
