¡Adios! Cuba

600_4269-e_wMany years ago here was a song popular with this line in the chorus (I translate it for you into English, while the song is in German): “Everything has an end, but only the sausage has two of them”.

This post is the end of my series on Cuba. I hope, you liked it. But, don’t be afraid, next week I start the next series.

Here’s my résumé on Cuba: It’s a nice country, friendly and open-minded people. A country with some problems, but the people try to manage them by creating new ideas. Cuba is undergoing huge changes currently and I guess, during the next few years it will change more than during the last 50 years.

Instead of saying “Goodbye” I’d say  more likely the German “Auf Wiedersehen” (see you again) or the French “Au revoir!”.

In case, you have Cuba on your bucket list, I’d recommend to go as soon as possible and don’t wait too long. There is so much changing, you’d probably miss that original spirit of Cuba. I guess, I already wrote more on this in an earlier post.

Take care!

A sad decision

600_4069-sc2_wYesterday evening I got aware of a recent decision of the Cuban government, published by Raoul Castro, the Cuban president: Cuba allows the people to import new cars.

While this is good news for the Cuban people, I feel a bit sad about it. You ask me why? The answer is easy. I’m a photographer and it was fantastic to see all these wonderful old cars in the Cuban streets, when I was in Cuba. Not in a museum, they are still in use, even they are more than 60 years old.

I’d miss them.

More on Cuba? Have a look here in my blog and you can learn a bit about that court from a photographers view.

Take care!
