Adaptation Lag

Helena is enjoying "the warm and humid Havana"  where there is "music from the streets and old American cars".

But for us, enthusiastic readers, that are anxious for an update on Helena's experience we might have to be a bit patient... I just learned that:
Currently Cuba still uses its satellite connection with a 65 Mb/s upload bandwidth and a 124 Mb/s download bandwidth for the entire country.
I made a rough calculation and realized that the entire Cuban territory has access to about the same amount of internet traffic as 100 persons in EU! Plus the access to internet is limited and costly.

Moreover Cuba is CET-6 hours. In practical terms it means that although it has passed 2 days since her departure, she only had 1 adaptation day in Havana.

Gooood Morning!
