Ep 5 | Cuba


Avoiding the resorts and the all-inclusive vacation, Scott, and Justin rent a car and head towards the tobacco fields around Viñales. They’re looking for a specific farmer to return a picture to him from a friend who visited years ago. After the successful search and a visit into the farmer’s home, they grab a couple of horses to ride into the countryside and try some sugarcane rum. On their way to Trinidad, they pick up a hitchhiker, play a baseball game with some kids, and are invited to take part in a traditional Santeria ceremony. But even the swinging machete, beating drums, sacrificed a chicken, rum, and cigars won’t end this trip. Finally, the three drive along the southeast coast and visit Fidel Castro’s remote hideout on their way to Carnival in Santiago de Cuba.
