But hey, the bonus of spending 2 hours trying to clear customs was the empty lines at the Cambio! Best currency to exchange? Finally, after what seemed to be a lifetime of travel woes, Jerry and I were able to make it to our accommodation in Havana , a lovely casa particular owned by the sweetest host of all our Cuban stays, Miriam. Best part about them? A more hospitable welcome we could not have asked for. Who else waits on tardy guests until midnight?

Breakfast was always prepared fresh for us in the mornings and should we have had any issues she was more than glad to help. We were so lucky to have found Casa Colonial Miriam Mirabal and chose it because of its super convenient location. Jetlagged but enthused to be in this vibrant old city, Jerry and I set out on the first of our Cuban escapades with our trusty Lonely Planet Cuba Travel Guide in hand. Now, tackling Havana is by far no easy feat, especially for a photographer like myself!
What we quickly learned, however, is that there are three regions to explore: Havana Vieja, Centro Habana and Vedado. Less hasslesome than the touristic region of Habana Vieja, Centro Habana is the best location to experience the local side of Havana. Young street football players enjoying a match in Centro Habana. Enjoying the art at Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes. Vedado is known as the business centre of Havana. So what is its appeal for tourists?
Arguably the most popular club to visit is the Fabrica de Arte Cubano. Sadly Jerry and I were unable to get in due to its large crowds. We DID, however, follow a few locals in the dead of night- living on the edge? Fun Fact: Havana absolutely comes to life on Saturday nights!

Vintage cars are even used as wedding props for local brides! Adding to the vintage feel of the city were the horse-drawn carriages that carried both tourists and locals around. Other interesting modes of transportation could also be found around the city such as Bicycle taxis. Bicycle Taxis are common modes of transportation in the city of Havana. Before our visit to Cuba we heard many rumors that the Cuban cuisine was no good. Jerry and I happened to find a slew of restaurants in Havana that offered world class cuisine.
Not only was the food and drink great but so was the friendly customer service we received. Fun Fact: Tipping in Cuba is well received. Although Cuba, like many places in the world, deals with its own form of racial biases, there were certainly no indicators of it in Havana. As you can imagine for us as an interracial couple this came as a great relief!

Blacks, whites and mulattoes intermingled with each other which made our hearts smile. Sake of a few sly winks of approval from other black women who likely thought I was a Cuban having a fling with a tourist , we felt quite at ease in Havana. It was nice to feel anonymous for once. Who likes dealing with odd stares and hushed whispers while travelling anyway? Much like its racial diversity, Havana represented a unique blend of European aesthetics with a Caribbean touch. Although a bit derelict, you could see its vintage splendor. We must warn that prices at the bar can be quite expensive! What a beautiful way to begin our Cuban travels!
