Photographer's Note

A view over the city of Havana from a high floor of the Habana Libre Hotel... It's amazing what a higher position allows you to see. It's a pity that a city such as Havana has this anguished, greyish look upon herself. Not at all resembling the joyfull people who live in a "hanging by a thread" caos...
Just a little history detail... Havana was never intended to be the capital of Cuba due to it's poor location in what concerned the government of the further provinces in the island, even though it was one of the 7 original towns established by Diego Velαzquez.
It was the conquest of Peru and Mexico by the spanish and the then strategic location of the city, at the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico, allowing the confluence of the fleets vessels that possibilitated the ascencion of Havana to become the fully righted capital.
