Havana Photo Diary

by admin

Havana is a unique city that can bewilder and captivate you at the same time. It may seem chaotic and confusing, with restaurants closed when they should be open, beer served in cans at top hotels, and a scarcity of wifi. The food is often subpar, and tourists frequently face obstacles due to the seemingly nonsensical Cuban system. Yet, despite all this, Havana has an undeniable charm and the people of Cuba are incredibly helpful. The city is full of life and energy.

Arriving in Havana feels like stepping back in time. The streets are dominated by American cars from the 1950s, their horns blaring in a captivating cacophony. Convertible Chevrolets, Buicks, and Cadillacs of every color can be seen driving among former colonial mansions that are desperately in need of restoration. The architecture is a captivating blend of different styles and vibrant colors. Baroque, Moorish, and Art Nouveau buildings stand, some beautifully restored while others are in a state of decay.
