cuba views

In May 2024 I had the opportunity to walk the streets of one of the most fascinating and interesting cities on the planet:  Havana.  I was able to wander around Old Habana, taking in the music, eating amazing food, watching some wonderful dancing and getting the chance to photograph some incredible people and architecture.

I also had the chance to visit the area around Habana, to visit Cardenas, Matanzas and Varadero. What made those visits so special was listening to an audio book describing the history of Cuba, particularly Cardenas and Matanzas, with some terrible stories of the slave trade, and what the revolutionaries of that time had to go through.

I am not going to get into politics, but I will say that the history of Cuba has been one of occupation, hardship and revolution. So, to be able to meet so many wonderful people and get to know the history of the place a bit more was a great privilege and I hope I get the chance to go back.
