We hopped on the public double-decker bus and headed downtown.
Our first stop was on the main strip where you can shop for souvenirs. The Cubans are very big on art, which you’ll find everywhere.
And recycling soda cans into art. Aren’t these cool?
You will find these cute vehicles called cocotaxis all over Cuba. They cost less than regular taxis.
There are businesses up and down the street.
Some more unusual than others.
And you’ll see some interesting things as you walk along.
|A bit of a fixer-upper.|
|It's an outdated phone but it works.|
|You know you're in a hot climate when you see bananas growing in someone's garden.|
|There are chickens and roosters everywhere.|
We got off the beaten path and took a stroll through the residential sections.
|Sure, why not take a selfie with the chickens?|
Cuba, as one local told us, is beautiful. But poor.
It was a wonderful way to spend the day because you have not really visited another country until you've seen how its people truly live.
And if you ever travel to Cuba, make sure to enjoy the most delicious ice cream you'll ever have.
|Vanilla for me; chocolate for him.|
Thanks for coming along. I'll share more photos next week. Have a lovely day, everyone.
