La Habana

 

I wish I could explain what this city means to me, I searched in vain for words. Only love and memories remains, and of course, the desire to be there again.

In lack of better words to describe this amazing place, I will live you with my photographs and the last verse of a beautiful poem by Jeff Rehab:

Cuba, I can see the green in your eyes
the peeling-paint bedroom dreams and
dirt-poor joy of your richness
laughing out the despair and desperation
dancing out the oppression and the paucity
the aching of your past
the battles of Castillo De Los Tres Santos
of the revolution
of living
and as I stand on the steps of El Capitolio
looking out at the decaying grandeur
I understand why
I will be back

  1. It’s such a beautiful country with a history so many of us know. I love how they maintained the old world feel of a time long gone. I hope to visit some day.

  2. I heard there is no crime in Cuba, people even didn’t lock the doors of their flats, I mean life is calm there. There is some poverty but a lot of mirth as well, people are dancing Latino dances in the streets, they are full of positive vibes.

  3. This is a country I do not even think I will ever see in my lifetime since it is so far from home. Your photos have brought me there, thank you. – Fred
