hable espanol?

OK - so the answer is no, unfortunately -

but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express recently (not really - just couldn't resist)

anyway- this is a post about Wednesday (this past one in particular)

On Wednesdays I am taking a class called "passport to Cuba" which is a six week exploration of Cuban history and culture taught by visiting presenters.  my friend Georgia mentioned that she was taking this class and I was able to sign up even though it had already met once.  So on Wednesday mornings I go to the Tampa History Center to learn about Cuba before I leave for my own trip to Cuba in April.

GA and I had lunch after class in the restaurant in the Center - it is a mini Columbia - an outpost of the renown Ybor City one founded in 1905 during the heyday of the Cuban community and cigar manufacturing here in Tampa. 

after class I went home and picked up Phil and we went to visit our friends in St Pete, where we went to a wonderful little Italian market and then had dinner on their lovely patio....

and just for fun after lunch on Thursday we took a "scenic route" home and on the way we found a surprise - a nice farm stand (right on the farm itself) where they had lovely heirloom tomatoes for sale.
