Havana Cuba


The visit was before the opening up of Cuba by the US government and we were not permitted to fly out of the US so flew Air Canada from Toronto.. We arrived at mid night in a taxi through unlit streets and stayed at the

This was a very good hotel located right on the main square and central to everything in town.At no time did we d=feel unsafe in walking through the streets and the many buildings that were falling down. Many of the locals were poor and had to line up for cash from the banks and  for the basic needs such as fruit and vegetables. We survived without the local currency for some days as the hotel had run out..The old cars were fascinating and many were found broken down beside the roads and stitched together. There were some great historical bars frequented by Hemingway and others and are worth a visit. The historical port areas were interesting and if you select restaurants designed for foreigners they were good quality although expensive.
