El Parque Metropolitano

HAVANA TIMES, Oct. 24 — On a lazy Sunday afternoon I took a long walk along the heavily trafficked downtown 23rd Street in Havana’s Vedado district. And then suddenly I found myself along the Almendares River in the Parque Metropolitano.

It had been a long time since I enjoyed the sensation of being along a river landscape. I want to share these images as an invitation to rediscover this peaceful spot of the capital city.
