One thought on “Marianao, Havana 2014

  • Excellent photographs of the real Havana seen by few tourists but home to more Cubans than Siboney. No UNESCO funding there! Marianoa reflects the reality of the Castro regime. It is there that you can hire a taxi particular to take you to other towns and cities.
