I'm not sure if it's to do with all the snow we're having here, but lately I have been harbouring a burning desire to visit Cuba. Images from Havana seem to be cropping up everywhere for me and I've really fallen for the imposing old buildings with their bright, sun bleached colours and crumbling, faded glory. It seems a lot of it is literally falling to pieces but it still has an air of elegance and grandeur. And don't even get me started on all the vintage amazing classic American cars which line the streets!
Here are some images from flickr which are helping to fuel my little moment of escapism...

The beaches don't look too bad either!

If anyone's ever been there, I'm really interested to hear your thoughts on what it's like as a destination. ...Still dreaming here, but hopefully one day I'll get there :)
