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 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!!

"Pharmacy in Havana-Where's Michael Moore?"

"The Malecon"

"The Rubble of Havana, be Careful!"

"Farmers Market in Old Havana"

"In Front of the Malecon, Reserved For Turists"

Inside of an old Elevator-Could this be our Yoany Sanchez' Elevator?"

Hugo Chavez' Cats

This morning when stopped by my parents house for some Cuban coffee. My dad told me that he had a strange dream. He tends to have very colorful dreams. He said, it was about Hugo Chavez, Venezuela's president-to the dismay of the Venezuelan people.-bottom: 0.08in } A:link { so-language: zxx } -->

Hugo walked into a gigantic cage filled with thousands of Cats-some calico and some white with black spots and he started to spit his out his idiotic remarks as he does often for hours on end. The cats would clap and and flatter him, laughing at his stupid jokes. Hmmm....I wonder what it means?
