We came here at the end of our first full day in Cuba, for dinner and to see the band.

I can’t tell you the name of the restaurant or the band but it was on a corner just before a large square, possibly the Plaza de la Catedral.

It was a traditional big band, perhaps in a similar style to Buena Vista Social Club.

And before long they had many people up on the floor dancing.

We also received two complimentary cocktails, which were excellent: a mojito and a white Russian.

So a good time was had by all…

And as we were walking back to our hotel on largely deserted streets, we were serenaded by a young woman on her guitar.  She was very accomplished.
