HAVANA TIMES, May 27 — Clear skies, the sun determined to melt us. The soil is dry, cracked. May holds fame for being rainy, yet the showery days of this season are becoming rarer.
Despite the drought, tremendous colors flood the city. These are seen in parks, along highways, higher or less leafy. They sometimes cluster in groups, while others appear alone amid some barren terrain.
Slowly the branches became filled with green leaves, followed by flowers that surprisingly appear from one day to the next to make the evenings of Havana even more beautiful. The ground seems a like a carpet of orange drawn by some pointillist painter.
