    Malecón

    June 8 in Cuba

    I walked not far north until I reached the road along the waterfront. This is Malecón, an 8km long promenade. Walking to the east, and towards central Havana, you realise the contrast of the bygone buildings, some retain their splendor, others have been left to become decrepit. It must have looked amazing in those days. Once closer to the centre, more have been preserved.

    From the most eastern part of Malecón you get a view across the entrance of Havana port to the impressively named Castillo De Los Tres Reyes Del Morro. Lots of locals rod fishing here.

    Along the way you can't but notice the variety of transport.

    Walking tour and a Jazz club

    October 22, 2017 in Cuba

    Breakfast was cooked for us in the casa by our host Frank with the highlight being a massive avocado the size of your head. We headed to Parque Central for the free walking tour which went for nearly four hours. We visited the first cigar workshop, Capitilo building, Bacardi House, a number of different squares and a mojito drinks place. We stopped for drinks on the rooftop bar of the hotel where Ernest Hemingway used to stay. We had lunch at Dandy’s where Emma’s friend’s boyfriend worked. We had really yummy pork tacos and sweet potato chips. We then walked out to the dance party ‘Rumba’ that was just finishing when we arrived at Callejon de Hamel. There were some interesting artist furniture made out of baths. We walked up to the National Hotel and had drinks on the porch. We then walked home along the Malecon. Back home for a sleep, some rum and showers. We had dinner at Dona Eutimia where we had yummy frozen margaritas. Emma and I shared fried plantains with different toppings on top. I had garlic prawns for main course. We walked along the Malecon stopping for rum and passionfruit drinks on the way. We walked up to Jazz club La Zorra for some easy listening. After a while and a brief appearance by me on stage we caught a vintage car cab ride home.Read more

    Havanna

    February 21 in Cuba

    Sightseeing zu Fuß - u.a. Plaza de la Revolution, Capitol, Kathedrale...
    Am Nachmittag jedoch lernten wir zwei Einheimische in unserem Alter kennen, mit denen wir uns trotz Sprachdifferenzen super verstanden.
    Mit ihnen begaben wir uns aufgleich weiter durch die Stadt und von Zeit zu Zeit stießen immer mehr Leute zu der Gruppe hinzu. Von verschiedenen Plätzen aus zog es uns schließlich ans Malécon, wo wir bei Rum und Zigarre den Sonnenuntergang genossen.Read more
