Havana   Everything I saw, every conversation I had, every impression was ambiguous, in-between sung patriotism and whispered criticism.

a glimpse

 

glimpse: EVERY OTHER DAY | When your everyday train only runs every other day, when the spotty schedule is connected by no more than a rough guideline, when there is no shortage of long delays, when the central train station is filled with emptiness, then you might be in Cuba.

glimpse: TALL TALES OF HAVANA | It's one of these tales that people tell in the streets of Havana: no building in the old town Habana Vieja must look down onto El Capitolio, the former seat of the government, and so it still stands out as the area's highest landmark. Funnily enough it resembles the Capitol in Washington, but trumps (no pun intended) the twin in height.

 

Cojímar   It's an architecture that you find throughout large parts of Latin America, Asia and Africa. Its beauty is in its subtlety, simplicity and humbleness, but if you can see it, it's abundant.
