A proper blogger would provide commentary on each of the photos posted. She would tell you the names of the buildings, give some history, and discuss the interesting juxtapositions of buildings, cars, and people. Since I’m (not yet) a digital nomad, I have other duties which require my attention. You know, stuff like a job to finance my travels, a home which needs constant attention, and a family who thinks I’m goofing off when they see me at the computer for hours at a time. (Hey, it takes a very long time to curate 2.800 photos.)
Because cars are what everyone asks about when I mention my trip to Cuba, I’ll start with a few of my favorites. I’ve included both the beautifully maintained classic cars and the “ugly cars” that get the job done. Also included are various other forms of transportation that are popular in Cuba.
This is some serious detailing!!!
I read somewhere that queuing is a way of life in Cuba. I believe it. Here, we have people waiting for buses and other rides.
The interesting thing about cars like the one below is that behind the wheel of a car stripped down to an engine, some tires, and a steering wheel would be a fashionable driver texting on an iPhone. Having a car is a luxury.
My all-time favorite car…..
Just a small sample of the beautiful and/or not-so-beautiful buildings of Havana:
