The Perils Of Shopping In Havana

The day after that trip to the ice cream parlor, I had some time to myself before getting home. I decided to take a look around and see what I could find. Cuba’s streets will give you the feeling that you’ve been displaced in time and space after a while. Buildings are old, some decrepit, and somehow also beautiful. The few cars that roam the roads are also old, many reassembled from the chop shop and not guaranteed to work well. Instead, bicycles abound and if you’re up for it, you can just go walking around Havana.
