Dec 28, 2017 - Harmony V

Today was full-on Havana.  Led by our guides Edgar Perez and Juan José Figuredo, we explored the ins and outs of the old city, markets, and bodegas.  Some visited Hemingway’s mansion on the outskirts of Havana while others toured the Partagas Cigar Factory and car garages.  Cruising the city in antique American cars was a highlight, and we topped off our day with a lecture on urban planning by Architect Pedro Vasquez.
