i first visited cuba in 2003. havana is a vibrant city, filled with contrasts. the people are warm and friendly, there’s music everywhere and you get the feeling you’ve stepped back in time.
old havana is a vibrant area. its cathedral is stunning. i took this shot at dusk.
visiting havana is an amazing experience. when you’re in old havana it feels as if you have stepped fifty years back in time.
in 2006, i celebrated new year’s in havana, cuba. driving back to our hotel on january 1st, we saw a fireworks show that lasted at least 30 minutes. it was a great way to start a new year.
in august we visited the fort overlooking havana to witness the cannon ceremony. here’s a shot of the city from the fort.
every night at 9, a ceremony at the old fort overlooking havana concludes with the firing of a canon to signify the port is closed.
my birthday is new year’s eve and i spent it in havana in 2006. There is music on virtually every street corner, and it’s wonderful. so much heart.
