The famous Classic Car row in Downtown. Taxi drivers line their classics up during their lunch breaks. Perfect for photo savvy tourists like me.

The last time I visited Cuba it was in 2014 and although that doesn’t seem like that long ago, so much has changed on the island since then. From President Obama’s visit, the opening of new luxury hotels in downtown Havana (The Ritz Carlton and the St. Regis in 2019) to the the renovation of Cuba’s capitol building, progress is happening in many places on...
