El Quijote Park, Cuba

written by owen, 8 days ago

If you are going to make a statue make one as awesome as this. Havana has parks everywhere.

"Porque somos de España en Lorca,en Machado, en Miguel. Porque España es la última mirada de sol del Pablo nuestro. Porque no hemos nunca medido el tamaño de los molinos de viento y sentimos bajo nuestros talones el costillar de Rocinante."

Souvenirs Cuba - part 1

written by owen, 24 days ago

There are literally infinite variety on offer but the cheap stuff is mostly key rings and fridge magnate for 1 CU. You could easily spend all your cash just buying this stuff. Resist the urge to buy from the first person you see and its often best to only buy a few at a time because better stuff is always around the corner.

I am not sure how you will be able to carry some of this stuff on the plane back home but in the next post I will show some of the larger stuff on offer.

Habana Vieja, Cuba

written by owen, Sun, 28th Aug 2016 at 8:29 pm

One of seven major plazas or districts in Havana. Part of a 35 year restoration project started in 1980. As with everywhere else around Havana you can either just take a 10 CUC taxi to the location or take a $35 CUC bus tour which will let you learn more about the area than just reading wikipedia. Your mileage may vary based on how well your guide can speak the english language. There is also a large catherdral that has a bell tower!

Down to the waterfront, Havana Cuba

written by owen, Thu, 25th Aug 2016 at 9:34 am

I don't know where all the people go on a Sunday but the streets are mostly empty. Depending on which hotel you stay at you can easily walk down to the Waterfront. Unless you are the kind of person with no polar compass and easily lose your direction. You can see in the pictures that there are very few signs and advertisement - just buildings and streets.

Most times I could not tell if a building was an apartment or a business - this is likely because I speak/read very little spanish but I could decipher most words with the app I downloaded for my smartphone. Heres is a video of the waterfront of Havana (EL MALECON DE LA HABANA)
