Fifi is a guinea pig and proud participant in a Cuban past time called Guinea Pig Roulette.

Here our fellow Insite Cuba member, Karen, makes a bet on one of the houses along the perimeter of the roulette table. She is betting that after Fifi is spun around a few times she will run into the house with the Cuban national bird on it. All the little houses have Cuban animals pictured on them.

…and decides NOT to take cover in the little house with Cuba’s National Bird. 😦

Fifi returns home to be with her other little guinea pig buddies.

This is the location of Guinea Pig Roulette. It is really just a rest stop with several little shops and cafes. We stopped here on rout to Cienfuegos, Cuba.

There  are many other animals here, but Guinea Pigs are the only ones who do roulette.
