Cuba: Day 5 (Part 1)

November 17, 2010

Kristin and I still felt like we had not seen everything we wanted to see in La Habana, so we decided to continue our walk around the city.  This time it was concentrated in Habana Vieja.  We followed the “Habana Vieja Walking Tour” that was recommended in my Cuba Lonely Planet guide; starting around Plaza Vieja and ending around Catedral de San Cristobal de la Habana.  The walk took us about two hours in total.  Heads up, be prepared for photo sensory overload!

The following photos were all taken within the vicinity of Plaza Vieja:

Of course, we took a little break in a shaded park to listen to a man croon Cuban ballads with his guitar. 

And then we continued on walking and all of the following photos were taken within the vicinity of Catedral de San Cristobal de la Habana:

Needing to majorly cool down, the two of us met up with Marc and headed to Playa del Este again. . .

    The architecture and colors are beyond stunning. The couple we photographed last weekend is in Cuba for their honeymoon and I am just imagining them walking around seeing all these same amazing sights as you!

    FANTASTIC photos, Andi!! Did you dye your hair?!! 🙂 Nice one!! How fun to find that fellow playing music. I just love all the bursts of color you captured. How cheering! 🙂

    Ahhh Cuba. Looks like you had a great time. Great shot of the lady smoking the cigar. I don’t even smoke, and got through a few Monte Cristo number 4’s myself. Finished with a serious head ache thought.

    I love your photos. We have similar tastes — windows/balconies with one person off center, locals, etc. Can’t really explain. I can’t believe I lived in Miami for four years and never went to Cuba!

    Ditto on the photos! I went to Cuba with my family when I was a kid. I remember thinking it was sad that the historic buildings were crumbling, and the contrast between the poor sections and resorts was stark.

    Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!

    Fantastic pictures! I hope to make it to Cuba next year. This provides even more motivation to get myself sorted so that I can hop on that plane!
