A Cuba classic purple car is a
beautiful view for card sent from Cuba to your friends. The view
will confirm their thoughts about Cuba related invariably of
tobacco, rum, classic American cars from the 50s. But there is
more about Cuba: everything smells like summer, the vegetation
is rich, with many varieties of palms, coconuts, huge oleanders,
roses of Sharon. All of these are growing free, caressed by sun.
The locals are not all disturbed by the fact that they have to
stop their classic purple car in the middle of the street to
turn more some strange liquid of brown color as carburant in the
tank. You can find everything about Havana in just one day. It
is not a place full of culture where to visit art museums is
worthy. But Havana has a non repeatable charm through the city
itself. The city is declared a UNESCO monument and is
understandable why. The colonial buildings and the downtown are
preserved, maybe because of the lack of money, and for their
historical value. The capital’s downtown is a mix of streets
that meet in few little squares, Plaza Vieja, Plaza de la
Catedral, Plaza de Armas. The local artists are all over the
place working on black coral jewelries or naÔvely painting their
meaning of the world. Havana means walks on Malecon, a boulevard
that has about 7 kilometers on the ocean` s shore. In the
evening hundreds of young people spend their loves on Malecon.
The samba, rumba or cha cha tunings can be heard everywhere.
Sometimes you can see the locals dancing. They are peaceful and
look with allowance to the tourists arrived from so long
distances to see them. They pose. Some of them do it with
professionalism, are dressed in colonial style and putting a
huge cigar in the mouth just pose.
