Sweet & Savory Bacon Cranberry Scones

Wrong. That trip happened to be to Havana, Cuba, which apparently is like illegal or something.  For those of you who haven’t kept up with the news for the past 53 years, the United States has this embargo against Cuba, meaning our citizens are forbidden from travelling there due to our disagreements with their oppressive Communist government.
