Koncert za soparo, sitnobo in ptičji orkester

[9. december 2015]
Zadnji postanek pred vrnitvijo v Havano je na moji poti Matanzas. Nad mestom sem pretežno razočaran, ne zdi se mi nič posebnega (morda zgolj zato, ker sem jih videl že veliko). Je pa fino pogledat starodavno lekarno in tudi osrednji trg je prijeten. Tu sem bil tudi priča zanimivemu pojavu: okoli 17h so se na drevesa na trgu z vseh strani neba začele zbirati trume ptičev. In to ne nekaj deset, ampak dobesedno stotine, verjetno tisoče! Ko že misliš, da so vse veje polne, jih prileti naslednjih 50. In še in še. Njihovo čivkanje je tako glasno, da skoraj ne slišiš tovornjakov, ki hrumijo tik ob parku. Baje je tako vsak dan, le poleti se selijo na Florido.

(...) Zaradi sopare, utrujenosti in bolečin v gležnju sem postajal slabe volje. Prijazen domačin mi je pokazal dobro zasebno restavracijo in po okrepitvi se je stanje znatno izboljšalo.

(...) Zadnje noči slabo spim. Morda zaradi sopare. Mislim, da se bom po vrnitvi domov z izjemnim užitkom zavil v kovter in sladko zaspal kot dojenček.

P. S. Tudi danes sem srečeval znane obraze. Kuba je še manjša kot Slovenija. ☺




Concerto for humidity, bad mood and a bird orchestra

[December 9th, 2015]
My last stop before returning to Havana is Matanzas. It mostly disappointed me, I don't find it particularly interesting (perhaps because I've visited a lot of places already). Well, the antique pharmacy is worth visiting and the main square is pleasant too. It was there where I witnessed an interesting phenomenon: around 5 P. M. flocks of birds from all directions started to gather at the square's trees. Not a few dozen, but literally hundreds, probably thousands of them! When you get a feeling all branches are already occupied, another 50 birds arrive. And more and more. Their chirping is so noisy you can hardly hear the trucks passing by the square. I was told this is happening daily, except in summers when the birds migrate to Florida.

(...) Due to humidity, tiredness and an aching ankle I was getting moody. A kind local then showed me a good private restaurant. The mood was much better after the meal.

(...) I don't sleep very well lately. Humidity might be the reason. I think it's going to be a great joy to come back home, "wrap" myself in a duvet and fall asleep like a baby.

P. S. I encountered some more familiar faces today. It appears Cuba is even smaller then Slovenia. ☺
