Early Morning Cardenas

Early Morning Cardenas


It was the "Cardenenses" and their ancestors who, over a period of 170 years, built a small village on Cárdenas Bay into a prosperous and progressive city.
The city has suffered mercilessly during the Castro years.
The Avenues once teeming with commercial activity and automobiles fell silent, giving the city an erie ghost-town appearance except for the passing of occasional bicycles or horse-drawn carts, and more recently, the advent of the taxi.

The city still has much appeal and the Spanish artistic influence is undeniable. We were fortunate to see Cardenas in some early morning light.

A marvel of image: the street scene, the fantastic color range, and the very graphic presence of the multitude of electric wires. BV.

I have seen the streets similar to this when I visited Cuba .
It is a beautiful country and kind people but all for the legend only .
