We enjoyed a pina colada at a rooftop restaurant on the harbour in Old Habana. The streets were pretty crowded with touristas.

This is the front of the cathedral in the old town.

Another shot of the cathedral front.

The ceiling above the altar in the cathedral - the paint(?) has really faded in the ceiling artwork.

This is the front door to the cathedral. I was a bit surprised at the height of the key hole and door knocker - the keyhole is for a pretty large key, and it is approximately 5 feet up from the floor; the door knocker is over 6 feet up. Did the people announce their presence on horseback?

Only if their horses climb stairs.

You have to remember who the leader is and how tall he is - it was probably made for his comfort and everyone else could figure out a way to adjust...
