Havana ... although, as in many urban areas, there are parts of the city that are not so pleasing, Havana is a city of beautiful old Spanish architecture, wonderful Cuban cuisine, lush flora & warm balmy breezes filled with the smell of fine tobacco, spices, rum & the perfume of many tropical flowers.
we decided that yes, our home should be lime green. and verdigris. with canary yellow window frames and royal red curtains. and we'd live just up the road from the harbour. and cool music would flow down like a waterfall of joy. (Fener neighborhood, Istanbul, Turkey)
