28-29 Nov - Cuba tour - Maria la Gorda

Trip to Maria la Gorda, a diving centre on the far west of Cuba. This resort is a good example of what happens when your employment arrangement gives you no incentive to strive for excellence.
The name of this resort, by the way, means "fat Maria" named after a woman who used to meet the needs of ravenous traders and pirates!
