Buena Vista

My physical yearning to visit Cuba is immeasurable. The colors, the decay, the architecture. But, it is the Cuba in its current time capsule that holds most appeal. The Cuba before the sluice gates of tourism open. The Cuba, so beautifully depicted here by photographer Michael Eastman...

  1. They call Havana the Rome of the Americas.
    I, too, would love to see the real Cuba.

    My brother and his family live in Puerto Rico, which also has its beautiful parts of decayed elegance.

    1. Actually, old San Juan remains one of my favorite places EVER. Just beautiful. And the people, food, weather... we were smitten!

  2. I would love to visit Cuba for all the reasons you mentioned. Now before it's too late.
