2019 Marabana: Go For It!

Its 5 o'clock in the morning, I wake up excited. Today is the big day. Today, I push my body and transcend the doubts and jitters of my mind to run the Marabana - Havana’s annual marathon. I do my routine without changing a thing; it always brings me luck. I continue to prepare myself and there is only one thought on my mind, I’m already a winner, I’m in Havana!

Castro's Limo - A Ride in History

On previous visits to Cuba I have seen enormous limousines parked in front of Hotel Capri in Vedado. I had never gave them much thought until I learned from a Cuban friend that they were once part of Fidel Castro’s private fleet. His real “in-character” ride of choice however was the military grade jeep. As well as El Comandante's transportation, it is these exact limos that were used to escort world leaders and dignitaries while in Cuba. After asking around I learned that you could in fact hire one of these limos and its driver.
