In May of 2012 I visited Cuba via a people-to-people educational exchange program. Under US law at the time, this was the legal path to travel to this colorful part of the world. Current law under the Obama administration has removed most of the previous barriers that limited US citizens from traveling to Cuba. It is very much worth the effort to arrange a trip there. The citizens of Havana are engaging and and friendly…and very open to having their pictures taken. I had a wonderful time and I wouldn’t hesitate to take a return trip should the opportunity arise.
Whether for cruising or for taxi service, classic cars rule the roads in Havana. When a car isn’t convenient, a scooter or human powered vehicle works fine.
“It does not matter what the physical weaknesses of men are when their hearts sprout ideas just and noble.”
Whether on the streets, in alleys, or bars and restaurants, music is the constant pulse of Havana.
