Well, Cuba has now officially been added to my travel bucket list, and I have the Kardashians to thank. On Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the family visited Cuba for the first time now that travel is once again permitted there from the United States. OK, so it meant they were all cut off from the rest of the world since their phones didn't work, but this social media addicted group seemed to do just fine without it. And let's just be real: The Kardashian family vacation to Cuba basically looked like a postcard, but isn't that true of all their vacations?
Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney were all on board, plus Kanye West, Malika Haqq, and all of the kids — including Saint, who made a rare KUWTK appearance, even if just for a moment. They rode around in brightly colored vintage cars, visited museums, drank some delicious looking sangria and even smoked a few cigars (which Kim did not like). The episode was essentially an hourlong tourism ad for Cuba, but I don't hate it... and it totally worked, because now I want to go. And all this family togetherness without technology led to kind of an interesting reveal: Kourtney and Kanye occasionally butt heads.
OK, it's nothing big, but they got in a mini tiff over dinner when Kourtney asked Kanye how he liked his blue contacts. Sounds innocent enough, right? But Kanye got a little offended, and later, they figured out why: She asked him that like she'd ask a kid a question, and Kanye doesn't like being talked to like that. Fair enough, and it didn't seem to put a damper on their trip either way.
And while Kris was at home, she got to hang out with Kylie, even though she was missing being able to talk to her other kids. So basically, everybody wins... even if they didn't get to go to Cuba. BRB, calling a travel agent. I need to get there (and in one of those sweet cars) STAT.
