Hola Havana!

Brooklyn Limestone
Taking a brief respite from celebrating all things autumn to share a few snapshots of my brief visit to Havana, Cuba last week.

Visiting is a bit like taking a trip in time - no ATMs, no cell service, no Starbucks - but a city with a rich history and warm, welcoming people.  I'm so lucky (kudos to the mr. for sending me on such a memorable trip to celebrate the end of my 30s) that I got to see it now before it changes.  I absolutely plan on returning to see more but I suspect it will not be the same when I do.

Despite the lack of amenities we are used to, Havana was such a tourist friendly city.  We took a private tour in an old car (highly recommend Old Car Tours) which was a highlight - as much for the chance to speak at length with locals as the pleasure of driving around in style. Naturally we sampled the mojitos (the best at Hotel Los Frailes), Cuban food (a yummy dinner at Dona Eutimia) and coffee (Cafe La Luz) with great delight. We were even blessed with the weather - mostly dry days despite the threat of Hurricane Nate passing by.

All in all, a great time and I can't wait to return.
