The Sights of Havana

It’s really true that there are still plenty of old American (and Soviet) cars in the streets of Havana. Although quite many of those have become taxis these days (owners pay 2 CUC per day for a licence), but there is plenty of really old and rusty ones that are used only for personal use. Our local guide told us that the typical tourist trap is a pink cabriolet car, as no Western woman can pass that. And we did see many, many of those. Our ride was a beige 1957 Ford.
