Snapshots from Havana, Cuba

I know I know.
I am taking too long to finish posting pictures and talking about my trip to Cuba.
I don't get away often.
So I am going to milk it as long as I can.
So there.
Anyways, I went to Cuba.
*snicker*


And I want to move there.
*giggle*

We took a day trip to the capital city Havana.
I decided that the next time we go, I want to spend more time in this beautiful city.
The buildings are stunning.
The vehicles are interesting.
The people are friendly.
The colours are vibrant.
And the smells are...umm..different.
But that is what makes it fun.

So I put on my complete tourist personality and went nuts taking in every single second.
I told my brain to take in these moments and scenes so I will never forget them.
I smiled at the many people who asked for money because I knew that we were in their country and this is how they "earn a living".
I soaked it all in.
And played the part of tourist as well as I could.

The shot of the old lady smoking cigar belongs in a photography book. Awesome.
