Daily Cuba 16. Behind the crumble

Home. Havana, Cuba.

Walking the streets of La Habana Viejo, you peek inside open-door passageways that certainly lead to nowhere. Surely no one lives in these buildings that seem to be crumbling and abandoned. Not so! This fine gentleman invited us into his home. Through curious hallways, rickety stairs, and crumbling buildings, there is HOME. Our guides explained that if people have money to fix up their home, they are going to spend it on the inside of the space, not the outside. It's not about what it looks like to outsiders, but whatever comforts they can add inside.
