Video: Tour of Havana





Havana is the capital, largest city, major port and leading commercial center of Cuba. The city has a population of 2.1 million inhabitants, and attracts over a million tourists annually.

When you are in Havana, of course you need to go on a tour with a classic car.

So we’re here: doing exactly that for three hours. Going around Havana and seeing all the spots.

Old Havana. La Havana Vieja was declared a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1982.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

All right, it is dinner time.

And for dinner today, I have something very typical for Cuba: it is called Enroja Vieja. This is basically pork beef and comes with rice and plantains.

Let’s dig in!

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

No visit to Havana is complete without experiencing live music.

Actually it’s hard not to, as music is happening everywhere, throughout the old town.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

It’s eight pm (8:00 pm) and we are at the fortress on the other side of the city to see the canon show, because every night at nine pm (9:00 pm), they shoot the canon.
