Travel Tales: Havana
Seeing the documentary “Buena Vista Social Club,” first piqued my interest in Cuba: the music, the architecture and the personalities depicted in the film took my breath away. But it wasn’t until I was traveling in Mexico and met a feisty Englishman that I seriously considered going there. “You’re from the Land of the Free, but you’re not free to go to Cuba!” he pointed out. That’s all it took: I was going to Cuba.
