I was in Havana recently and fell in love with the place! I just felt it was a magical trip back in time with the old mansions showing wear and tear over what was once splendid glory. The old 50's bightly colored cars of red and pink and blue are at every turn. It's great to visit it now before US commercialization changes it. Now it is Cuba the way Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin experienced it and in's it's obvious decay it is still romantically magnificent.
I loved it so much I am going back 02 June, I will give you a full report on it then.
