Urban centres like Havana and Santiago de Cuba are characterised by the contagious funk of loud exhaust pipes from old fashioned cars, the smell of petrol, children playing in the streets and people watching the world go by from rocking chairs on verandas. The streets are lined with what were once grand colonial houses, pillared, tierred and ornamented like wedding cakes.
As you travel through the everchanging landscapes and discover Cuba´s natural beauty, what remains a staple throughout Cuba is the good nature of the people. Despite Cuba's political situation and poverty, people don't take things for granted, but instead they make the very most of what they've got.
