CUBA | Tuesday, 3 Nov 2009 | Views [1374]

The Real Havana!

CUBA | Friday, 23 Oct 2009 | Views [1881]

This morning I woke up early but I was too lazy to leave. I don't know why. I paid Lisdey 30 CUC for my stay and I just lazed around for a bit. After having a few cups of tea I was finally ready to set out at about noon. My plan was to go to Angie's ... Read more >

'50s Time Capsule

CUBA | Wednesday, 21 Oct 2009 | Views [2641]
