It's grand in scale and very influenced by European architecture. Wide boulevards. Gorgeous tile and brickwork. Plazas where people gather and hang out. A very social city. A very friendly city.
Walk down any street and you will hear music from most homes. Toddlers sitting on the front steps playing intricate drumming rhythms on bongos and older kids and adults playing congos. Classical music as you walk by the dance academies. It is alive with music and people.

Writing these three posts and sharing Cuba with you makes me hungry to travel there again. It was the perfect trip for us - a little bit of beach and a lot of music and history and architecture. Viva Cuba!
