Ohh it’s been a while… This is my entry for this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge: Fray
Wave your flag- celebrating the world cup finals in Havana, driving along the Malecón. At this point the flags are only frayed. Later on they literally fell apart in our hands.
Last sunday I left noisy and crowded Havana behind, and took a trip to the nearby playas del este, a string of very fine white beaches, that can be easily reached from downtown Havana. There are Maquinas leaving from a square next to the train station in Habana Vieja, those big oldtimers, that serve as collective taxis. We paid (after some haggling) 1 CUC for the half-hour ride to the beach Santa Maria del Mar. It was heavenly, and although a sunday, not very crowded. I guess it’s still winter for Cubans. Judge for yourself. When we drove back into the city in twilight, it seemed so much nicer and quieter to me.
This is a little video I put together from a few very random clips I taped on my cell phone and camera while travelling in Colombia. Mostly in buses or taxis, but also in rikshas, boats, cable cars, and walking, of course. The music you hear was mostly provided by the driver. I cut in some sequences of street music, just because it’s everywhere and totally belongs to the experience. The pictures from Medellín were taken from the Metrocable, that takes you from the mountains down over some of the poorest barrios.
Forgive me for the crappy editing and quality, I’m just starting out.
