According to weather forecast, the day Varadero would be sunny, few clouds, mild breeze, temperature around 29 ℃. Sky was not fully lighted up yet in the early morning. Water of swimming pool in back garden appeared as a clean mirror. A summer day in winter awoke in cozy and peaceful atmosphere.

Around nine clock in the morning, crystal clear sun light dropped down from the hotel’s glass dome and lighted up the corridors inside.

The internal structure of my hotel was wonderful. The space above main lobby rose up right to the glass dome of the building. It made the hotel’s interior space very comfortable. However, it also made the whole interior into a giant resonance box. When hurricane came, huge roar might echo throughout the hotel. Hurricanes did not come often. But another kind of sound did. There was a small theater beside lobby. Night shows were performed every night from ten o’clock to midnight. Some visitors complained the noise and even moved out the hotel. I got to know the issue already when I did research before the vacation and prepared myself ready to accept it. Actually I was not bothered that much for my room was on a high floor.

After breakfast I went to beach with my camera.

How could I just be a bystander in such a beautiful summer day in winter? After lunch, I put on swimsuit, went back beach, enjoyed world class beach, sea water and sunshine.
