Havana, home of my childhood, home of my first girlfriend and my first dissapointment... beatiful Havana.... Where I left hundreds of very good friends, friends that will last forever... City of the columns as Alejo Carpentier used to say because of the numerous columns along the streets, holding the ceilings in order to protect the wonderer from the hot tropical sun.

U can not visit Cuba and not visit Havana. Walk and wait the sunset in the Malecon, see the ships entering the bay, listen to El Cañonazo, a ceremony that takes place in La Cabaña, one of the 4 fortress guarding the caribbean perl, each day at 9pm. U must walk in Havana Vieja, see the kids playing on the streets, the old houses falling down that are still standing miraculously and there are people living there. U must eat ice cream in Coppelia, the biggest ice cream cafeteria in Cuba, where every habanero goes to have his peace with its ice cream. U must visit Cojimar, where Hemingway used to write his famous novel "The old man and the sea" and also his house in San Miguel, outside the noisy Havana. Take your mojito in La Bodeguita and your daiquiri in El Floridita as Hemingway used to do. Feed the pigeons in the Cathedral San Francisco de Asis, walk the Obispo street and stop on any cafe to hear some band playing typical cuban songs... enjoy havana and have fun!

Address: The cuban capital...
