Havana – Botanic Gardens

Havana, Cuba, 11 September 2016

This episode has been a little later than normal because I was laid low for a while with a kidney stone.  Fine now.  Lucky to live in a country with socialised medicine where everyone gets excellent medical attention and there is no charge for emergency care.

We got up early in the morning, when there were no people on the streets.  After breakfast, we found a cab to go to the Botanic Gardens.

As the sign says, this is the Special Train from Havana to Santiago de Cuba.

The specimens in the Botanic Gardens generally had no labels, so I’m not going to try to describe them.
