Havana, day 2

united_kingdomIn our second day in Havana we took the T1 hop on-off bus bus for 5 euros per person all day. It was a bit cloudy and windy (especially on Malecon) but the ride was beautiful, as we saw the other parts of Havana – Vedado and Miramar, we passed by Plaza de la Revolucion and we admired Havana and its people from the roof of the bus.

We got down to visit Colón Cemetery, and open air museum with impressive marble statues.


romania_flagA doua zi in Havana

De dimineata am luat autobuzul turistic T1 hop on-hop off, adica te dai jos la ce statie vrei si il iei pe urmatorul dupa cat timp vrei, pentru 5 euro de persoana valabil toata ziua. Desi a fost cam innorat si vant (mai ales pe Malecon) turul a fost frumos, caci am vazut si alte parti ale Havanei – Vedado si Miramar, am trecut pe la Piata Revolutiei (cea cu urasele fete ale lui Che Guevara si Fidel pe cladiri), si am admirat Havana si oamenii sai de la inaltime (am stat in partea de sus, deschisa, a autobuzului).

Am coborat sa vizitam cimitirul Colón Cristóbal, care este nespus de frumos, cu monumente sculpturi din marmura, ca un muzeu in aer liber. Am sa dedic o postare separata cimitirului, pentru ca am multe poze frumoase sa va arat.

united_kingdomAfter finishing the bus tour, we walked slowly from Malecon to the Habana Vieja: souvenirs, Plaza de la Catedral, then lunch in a green square with a fountain and singers. After that we climbed the San Francisco tower for a killer view over Havana. After all this we went to Plaza Vieja where had an awful and expensive Daiquiri and Mojito, but with lovely view. Good memories!🙂


romania_flagDupa ce am terminat turul cu autobuzul am luat-o pe jos de pe Malecon pana in Havana Veche (Habana Vieja): suveniruri, Plaza de la Catedral, apoi pranzul intr-un scuar cu o fantana si cantareti, dupa care am urcat in turnul catedralei San Francisco aflat in Plaza cu acelasi nume – vedera panoramica asupra Havanei e superba! Dupa toate astea am baut in Plaza Vieja (plaza Veche) ce consider ca e cel mai scump si nasol Daquiri si Mojito facut vreodata, dar a compensat cu o vedere minunata din balcon.
