Things to Do in Havana, Cuba

Published Date Author: , May 10th, 2014

Havana, Cuba - AlainHavana is a kaleidoscope of everything: of collapsing decay, of oozing sexuality, of colorful colonial houses, of playful kids, of rampant jineteros, of warm, happy people, of dusty streets, of stinking rubbish, of excessive propaganda, of scorching heat, of intolerable pollution, of jobless people lazying around and of abject poverty.

These scenes didn’t only break my heart but also admire the tenacity and resiliency of its citizens. They’re happy people despite of everything around them. Surviving, like the rest of us, is a way of life.

Havana, as Cuba’s biggest city, is torn between propaganda and modernity. It’s a city trying hard to be modern but pulled back to stay the same. It’s a city ready to embrace the world but freedom is curtailed. It’s a city with so much life yet desperate to be alive. It’s a city of hope yet dreams are limited.
