It happens often, while traveling not knowing the time, the day, or even the date, but this excursion was very different. I landed on a different decade! There were many moments where I asked myself “Is this what it was like back in the 60’s?” or “How are these cars still running?” I am 100% positive that Cubans are the best mechanics in the world. My entire vacation consisted of commuting in classic cars…well minus the airplanes. The men who drove them were proud of their automobiles. European tourists frequently took pictures of the men and their cars. They understood the value of these rare gems, even though they displayed very little of their pride.
