Our hotel in Cuba had suffered extensive damage as a result of several hurricanes that hit the region a few years ago. They had done a lot of rebuilding since but ruins of former structures and roads littered the land along the coast. It was not exactly safe, with huge pieces of glass and steel bits sticking out of the sand all over the place. Of course we couldn't resist investigating. The saddest part for me was all of the pieces of coral that had been pulled up and washed ashore. There were giant pieces of brain coral and huge fans of purple fan coral literally everywhere!
