Havana residents enjoy summer streets
The inhabitants of Havana are saying "good bye" to August by going out on the streets to take advantage of some of the cultural offerings in a summer when trips to the beach became less important.

There are seven two-hour planned routes for those who want to learn about anything from architecture to culture, although many prefer to see Havana without guides.

The parade of entire families and groups of young people goes from noon until midnight, with concentration points the historic center, the highest buildings in Vedado, and even the monument to National Hero Jose Marti in Revolution Square.

"La Rampa" or 23rd Street, from the seawall near movie theatres and the famous Coppelia ice cream park all the way up to the corner of 23rd and 12th Streets, is always crowded.

The dancing spots encourage friendships and romance with Cuban, Caribbean and Latin American musical rhythms everywhere.
