While yesterday we did the must-sees, today was off-the-beaten path Havana.  I joined a group tour of the socialist housing project of Alamar, where we met with farmers at the Organopónico Vivero.  We congregated in Central Havana for lunch before heading out to Marianao to see the upbeat African-Spanish fusion dance company, Habana Compás.  As it was our last night in Havana, we had a royal send-off with a private performance by Grammy-nominated El Septeto Nacional.
