  • Havana’s Deco Ruins

    Posted by Jonathan on May 4th, 2008 (All posts by )

    Cuba is such a tragedy – a prosperous and basically decent society, wrecked. The old buildings are like ancient ruins that provide hints of the accomplishment and promise that used to be.

      Beautiful and sad.

      Hopefully Cuba can get back on track. Prague and Cracow are beautiful again, or so I am informed by reliable first-hand reports.

      Havana may yet be, as well.

      I hope so.

      Oh you do know this is the way to my heart, don’t you?
      Thank you.

      Neat video. I have always had an urge to visit Havana one day. Hopefully within my lifetime the trash will be taken out, these beautiful places will be restored, and I can see them first hand. If private money were allowed to invest in Havana I would think that the tourist industry there would be absolutely massive, once the place is cleaned up.
