I got these photos from a friend of Monaga's, Nigel Toft. Nigel sent me some photos of his recent trip to Cuba. He stayed in the great apartment filled with anitques. When I asked him if I could use some of the photos he sent along this blurb: Anthony ..if you are going to show some of the photos of the buildings in Havana on your blog..you might mention that Havana Vieja is a World Heritage Site... and very ,very well conserved ..quite beautiful... much better conserved than most urban World Heritage Sites.. the buildings in the pics are in Havana Centro..this is falling down..crumbling despite having many WONDERFUL examples of 19th cent architecture..it is equally deserving of protection under international law..it is an architectural treasure house.. the buildings are just as beautiful as their inhabitants... Havana is a very beautiful city ..with very beautiful people..!!
