Looking for recent Havana Cuba pictures?
I went to Havana Cuba in 2017 and all of the pictures below are from that trip.
Havana is just 106 miles from Key West in the USA, but it feels like suddenly we’ve gone back in time.
Some things I expected to see – like the beautiful classic cars & building that have been perfectly maintained.
Other views are less stunning – like crumbling buildings & dirty city streets.
There is a constant pull between feelings of nostalgia & realization of oppression.
The purposeful & visible government displays of weapons & tanks are a jarring reminder that a communist government still controls its people.
It’s hard to say whether it’s despite of all of this or because of all of this, but the Cuban people have a quiet strength & pride that rises above the oppression.
As a tourist in Havana Cuba, don’t let the pictures fool you.
There are things you need to know before visiting Cuba.
Such as, when our luggage didn’t arrive on the plane, we were 100% unable to buy basic necessities like deodorant & toothpaste because there are NO STORES!
Hint: don’t check your luggage when traveling to Cuba.
Despite all of this, the people of Cuba are resilient & optimistic.
