A Havana Must-See: the Newly Renovated Capitolio

The Old Havana district in Cuba’s capital city is a maze of colorful cobblestone alleyways that date back to the 16th century. Still mostly residential, the streets are dotted with neighbors peering over their aging apartment balconies at the bustle below. Street vendors hawk farm fresh mangoes while groups of children play soccer and de facto mechanics work miracles to keep 1950’s American classic cars running without proper replacement parts.

For example, much of the recent media coverage about the U.S. Cuba travel market, especially regarding flights, has followed the story line that the market is not as strong as had been expected. However, that misses a great deal of the real story.
