Virtual Tour of Havana

I was visiting Yoany Sanchez' blog Generation Y and someone called Webmaster, started posting these panoramic photographs. The pictures are a courtesy of 360Cities.net and were taken by Jeffrey Martin. They are amazing, you get the feeling you are standing in the middle of Havana. You can see what's on the sides, behind, in the back and below!!

For those of us who left so long ago without the possibility of returning, it's difficult to look at this images. Our beloved Havana Crumbles.

Pay close attention to the transparent arrows withing the photographs. When you click on them, you are transported into a different location withing the old city. It's fascinating!!
