walking the city streets, a pretty flower market in old havana
plants and roots growing from scaffolding on a facade, left neglected for years
havana streets are lined with delightfully mismatched dwellings and old, majestic cars
the back patio of atelier, the irony is that coca-cola does not distribute to cuba due to the embargo…
the magical world of jose fuster – a mosaic paradise. fuster has made many artistic contributions to the local community by improving and beautifying the neighborhood.
after walking through the home of jose fuster, we visited the home of the principal officer for the US interests section to enjoy cocktails and conversations about relations between the US and cuba.
we listened to the “ambassador” discuss the current state of affairs and the outlook for the future between the US and cuba and were able to ask questions. I think our group could’ve spent all evening asking questions and absorbing information, it was a fascinating conversation and an extremely unique experience – one of my favorites of the trip. after our discussion, we all headed to the lawn to explore the grounds and take a group photo. it was such a gorgeous day.
