Local bar scene in Havana well off the tourist trail so you can get cheap (fried!) food and mojitos (rum, mint and lemon cocktails).

The Bacardi building - the family actually left Cuba in 1960 when the state started Nationalising assets, so they now make their rum everywhere but Cuba!

Havana is old. Some of the more important buildings are renovated with care, others are just hanging together, but the people need somehwhere to live.

Museo de la Revolucion which was previously the Prime Ministers palace before students invaded in an attempt to overthrough the government (bullet holes riddle the interior marble) before Castro and his team fired up in the late 50´s. At the back of this place sits the Boat ´Granma´ which Fidel, Che and 80 odd others travelled from Mexico with to launch the revolution.

Havana´s tight one way streets and the crowding buildings where people sit in the doorways talking and watching life go buy.
