    Anybody going? Other than me?

    As far as I can tell, there are free VIP Grand Stand tickets to this match here. If only I knew that these free tickets would show up when I bought my Grand Stand Early Bird ticket.

    The Cayman Islands are a horror show for budget travel. I found Major Rod's Hostel. CI$35 for a shared dorm, CI$80 for a private room.

    The stadium vibe was mellow. Maybe 25 or so AO at the end of the grandstand. Other Cayman activities must have worn them out because they took some relatively long breaks from the chanting in the 2nd half. I saw Cordeiro visit them before the match.

    The neutrals leaned heavily for Cuba. The loudest cheers were for Cuban attacks.

    I would have never visited Grand Cayman except for the match. Banks and souvenir shops for cruise ship visitors, shuttled on shore by smaller boats. The water looks nice. I visited the National Museum and, later this morning, the National Art Gallery. Everything is walking distance; the airport and the stadium about 30 minutes or so from the center of George Town.

    If only the Cuban National Stadium had lights.......
