Today was very much off the beaten path in Havana.  While one group went to the Cuban Fine Arts Museum and OnCuba Magazine, I guided another to the socialist housing project of Alamar.  Here, we visited organic farms, markets, and took an up-close view of the real life of a Habanero.  We regathered in the afternoon for a compelling performance by Habana Compas, followed by a private concert with the Grammy-nominated band El Septeto Nacional.
