When I look back on my time in Havana, I will definitely remember the range of eccentric classic cars, the lovely people in the streets, who are always dancing and singing, and generally the great atmosphere which makes the city feel like a place entirely out of this world. But what will certainly stay with me are the beautiful colours; the way the pastels complement each other across neighbouring facades, and how the vibrant shades blend in an artful expression of the city’s character. Here is a look through my lens as I try to capture the most beautiful sights in Havana.
Plaza Vieja – we stopped for mojitos in the sun here.
Hotel Ambos Mundos, where Hemingway stayed in a room on the 5th floor during his time in Cuba.
La Bodeguita del Medio, Hemingway’s favourite bar, and home of the best mojito in Havana (or so I’m told!).
The Presidential Palace.
Capitolio, modelled after The US Capitol building in Washington.
Floridita, another famous bar that Hemingway frequented.
The Cathedral – it’s worth a visit!
The cruise ship is leaving the port. We’re waving goodbye to one of the most unique places we’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting.
I hope this collection of Havana moments will inspire many of you to go and explore this incredible city! Or have you been already? What did you enjoy the most? Drop a note with a link to your own blog posts – I’m always happy to see more of Cuba!
