|Watching the approach into Havana.|
Coming into port, we immediately noticed that only two ships can be docked at a time. The remaining berths were in decay. This would be a common theme as we made our way around Old Havana.

|Workers making cigars in Havana, Cuba.|
|It wasn't openly acknowledged, but my husband was able|
to buy several cigars (freshly rolled) directly from a
few of the workers.
|My husband enjoying his spoils.|
|The local beer and a cola. This was the first|
country I've ever traveled to with
no Coke products.
|My husband with a cigar and a Cuban sandwich.|
I have very few photos of my dearest WITHOUT

didn't originate in Cuba, but rather in Florida.
|This street in Havana was featured in The Fast|
and the Furious 8 film.

The only cars that Cuban citizens can own legally
are ones created and bought before 1959.
Most are used as taxis.
|We saw only a few stray dogs, but an abundance of cats. Most are|
fed by locals and appear to be in good health.
|My husband waits to cross the street.|
Havana is a dichotomy of past and present.

the U.S. Capitol Building.
