Old Habana Cuba
(Click on image to enlarge)
Old Habana Cuba. Cuba, where the new is juxtaposed with the old. Cuba remains a mystery to many around the world, in large part due to the trade embargo imposed by the United States government on October 19, 1960. Its been almost 54 years, and the embargo still stands. Cuba has been on my personal bucket list since I was a 12-year old kid. I can remember watching television, mesmerized, as Fidel Castro and Che Guevara overthrew the Batista regime and marched triumphantly into Havana on January 1, 1959, to reclaim the government for the people. Post-revolution events are still being hotly debated within the Cuban diaspora, but the fact remains that Cuba is still an exotic Caribbean island full of mystery and charm.
