Beyond the beaches,
the Caribbean city intrigues.
Vitality is the personality
of this urban center.
Havana boasts of
a diverse architecture –
neoclassical, art deco, modern,
Colonial and baroque
(and if it ain’t baroque, no arreglarlo!)
A blend of history
(much a mystery) and music,
passionate poetics –
an adventure in culture,
a magical exploration…
The brochure paints a pretty picture,
but the mixture is less than ideal.
Still much to learn and discern.
