While Charlie and I were in Cuba I became familiar with an iPhone app called It was invaluable.

After downloaded the app can be zoomed.

I downloaded the Cuba map.

Route from Havana airport to Casa Marta.

I opened it after we hired a cab at the Airport to take us to our first casa particulare.

The blue arrow head pinpoints where in the world I am.

The blue arrow pinpointed where we were and showed us that the route we were following was actually taking us to our expected destination.

I could mark destinations of interest.

The best part of is that it uses no data and does not need wi-fi; it works on GPS.

You can plan a route by car, walking, bus, or bike.

I could plan trips even if someone else was driving as was the case when riding from Havana to Viñales and back again in a taxi collectivo.

I have downloaded my local map and also our next trip: London.

Do you have a favorite app?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. Stuck in time is a good description. Even the furniture in the average home has crocheted arm rests and chair backs seldom seen in the U.S. in 2018. Jo

      1. The circumstances that forced them to where they are now are sad, but credit to that they have a rich and authentic lifestyle of sort where things are not always easy!
