Cuba Old and New

Post by minniev »

Most of what we saw in Cuba was old - buildings, cars, infrastructure. But the big cranes in the distance are part of new construction, and some of the old city is beautifully refurbished. There is still plenty of "character" to enjoy, though.

Love the colorful kitchen sink here Minnie. I have been trying to remember the type/name of the yellow vehicle, but can't remember, looks as thou it may be some form of Jeep?

I was in Cuba back in the 70's at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, not the detention camp. We were not allowed off the base, so therefor, no pictures of the event. For me, a young early 20's single person, that part of Cuba was boring and was no fun whatsoever.

No running boards they must have brought chairs. And it's probably THEIR spot. Lazy days. Great insight into another way of unhurried life. Matt

Cuba is very colorful. My photography of it was lacking due to things I've mentioned. I am sorry you didn't get to visit the colorful parts. My uncle was stationed there in the 50s and he got to see it at its peak, right before the clock stopped, and talked a lot about it.

thanks Frank. I may jazz up the color a bit to see, but it was such an overcast day I was unsure about going too far. I'm working on another car image right now so will use it for a guinea pig.

It's a general parking area for lots of stuff, both locals visiting the restaurants and clubs, and taxis of all descriptions ready to haul tourists or locals about. Most locals don't have vehicles so they travel by bus and taxi.

I love their determination to keep everything running! S-
