We were about half way from Havana to Vinales when our taxi driver slowed rapidly. I detected, almost instantly, the smell of coolant on hot metal. We had blown a hose.
Luckily, the hose had split right next to the clamp, so all that was necessary was to loosen the clamp, shorten the hose, and re-attach it.
Of course, we would then need to re-fill the radiator. That proved to be the hard part.
We donated all the drinking water we had in the car, but it was not enough.
We drove about a mile and stopped to ask this farmer where we could get water. He was grazing some cows and told us that there was water right under this bridge.
Our driver made two trips to the stream to fill the radiator.
The farmer enjoyed the show and had a good laugh.
He wore no shoes.
I asked him where his shoes were and he just motioned to the other side of the road. I hope he had some.
