Armchair Traveler: Cuba


In the entranceway of a 19th century bourgeois home in central Havana, a small car awaits repairs beside a mural of Camilo Cienfuengos and the national flag. In the stairwell above are painted various quotes by Fidel Castro. From a late 1990s edition of Marie Claire Maison (sorry - no record of the photographer).

There's just something so fascinating about the stately buildings fallen into decay in Cuba, isn't there?

This book is full of absolutely incredible images of the crumbling architecture in Havana: http://morewaystowastetime.blogspot.com/2007/09/good-reads-inside-havana.html

I saw it in a store awhile back and literally couldn't put it down.
