My Havana, by Rosemary Wells with Secundino Fernandez, illustrated by Peter Ferguson. 1950s Havana is alive with color, music, and glamour and Dino itches to capture it on paper. When Fidel Castro and the Communist Party take over the Cuban government, Dino’s family moves to New York, where he pours his heart into making a model of Havana’s archways and balconies, buildings and streets. A tender ode to an immigrant boy who grew up to be a US architect. HC 9780763643058 / Ages 7-10
Do these details of Havana, Cuba travel surprise you?
I could see America from my apartment! . . Sweet #balcony in my #havana #airbnb . . Since there aren't enough hotel rooms in Havana to meet the demand and since restrictions on entrepreneurship were lifted recently many Cubans rent out rooms and apartments to visitors. As a bonus visitors get to know locals right off the bat and have an independent people-to-people experience. . #cuba by @pctotaro
