La Habana; photopost

Leave a comment

img_1670I have too many impressions of Cuba to structure them. And that is killing me. I really want to share as much as possible here to remember one of the richest experiences in my life so far. Luckily I have a habit of taking notes while traveling so it should still be possible for me to restore my feelings while being there.

I usually start all the after-trip-posts with stories and then I go with the pictures, already having told briefly what it’s all about for me. But this time I am going the easy way, starting with a photopost. It’s mostly Old Havana with some exceptions from el Morro castle and Vedado. Of course, I post the pretty side of it. There is much more dirt, trash and mess all around. Nevertheless, Havana is so charming… it is a real pearl of the Caribbean world. And for me it will always look like in the following pictures. Add loud noises, never-ending music, a lot of movement and inexhaustible energy! Welcome to Cuba!
