Of Cuba that is. The Viñales Valley of Pinar Del Rio in all its glory. The strange rock-like masses sticking up like huge thumbs from the red pinareño earth are called mogotes. They are limestone formations, each with its own micro-environment.
Only 20 miles away from my grandfather’s birthplace, you can bet that this will be at the top of the list of places I will visit in a free Cuba.
