Havana, Cuba

The more touristy side of Havana: Cuba

“Hola” fellow Kaptain Kenny readers and Cuba lovers,

As you may know, I’ve already written quite a lengthy piece on Cuba and gave my tips/advice if you have an upcoming trip.

For that reason, I’d like to point out that this point is just going to be a collection of photos from my time spent in Havana. Maybe you’d like to see what Havana looks like, or get a feel for the place before going – well if so, this will be the post for you.

See where that red car was coming from? I’m pretty sure those coloured buildings make up the stereotypical ‘feature’ photo of Cuba/Havana in all guide books and on all blogs!

This was by far the most well-kept square in the city. It didn’t seem real when you compared it to other areas.

This is a wooden floorboard which was made back in Cuba’s colonial days. Apparently the wealthy didn’t like the sound of their shoes on the cobblestones so they demanded that wood be laid down instead.
