We went to Cuba for our honeymoon. I shared some of the music here. And I'll be sharing the architecture of Havana soon too. Now it's time for the people.
You know how I love to travel, right? I'll do the beach holiday - no question. You'll see me kayaking and swimming and outrigger canoeing. And sitting by the beach reading a good book (by the way, isn't it a bit of a pain figuring out what to read next with the e-reader? You used to be able to scan the books by the pool to see what people are reading. Not any more. Sniff...).
But when I travel, it's also just as much about the people. How do they live? What is it really like? We were fortunate with Havana to know people who do live there - some born and raised and some who transferred for work, fell in love with Cuba and stayed.
Some images of the people of Havana.

Want to see more of Cuba? Rent Strawberry and Chocolate by Tomás Gutiérrez and Carlos Tabío(1993), the first Cuban production ever nominated for an Academy Award as best foreign language film. I had ice cream at that same place in Havana. And for the music there's always the Buena Vista Social Club.
