This is the second post that I am actually writing myself. The first three posts were done by Carlos, my administrator, in Arizona through email as I could not access this site. It now seems to be working for me. Today has been a day off without the usual early morning photographing in the side streets.
We are up early and have our cappuccinos in the hotel lobby at 5:30 a.m. We are staying at the Hotel Parque Centrale in Havana and it is very elegant, and for me, a huge surprise. I love this hotel. It feels a bit like a plantation hotel with a very tropical feeling in the lobby and the rooms are spacious and elegant.
We arrived in Havana this afternoon. This city is vibrant with much activity and excitement in Hotel Parque Centrale where our group is staying for the duration of our explorations. I spent the evening watching the colour and magic of dancers in Havana Vieja, the old part of the city .
