Cuba Welcomes You, Yankee Imperialists!

Cuba Welcomes You, Yankee Imperialists!

"Spectacular decrepitude blankets Havana like ocean mist. It's odd, seeing neighborhoods of mansions that are simultaneously beautiful and falling apart. Much of Havana is like that—picturesque for photographers; not so great to live in. It is not an abandoned city, like parts of Detroit, where past glories have given way to an urban ghost town. It is fully alive, fully vibrant, and at the same time fully dilapidated. Much of Vedado looks like an area that has been repopulated after the end of a zombie apocalypse."
