Title: Cuban Architecture

The architecture is truly stunning. Havana must have been one of, if not the most, beautiful cities in the world. The tourist centre is beautiful, clean and renovated. Step outside and buildings are part lived in, part falling down with streets full of rubbish and dog pooh everywhere. It is hard to know whether to rejoice for what is saved or weep for what is being lost.
