This Havana classic car taxi ride takes you through and past the neighborhoods Vedado (incl. Plaza de la Revolución), Centro Habana (incl. Chinatown) and La Habana Vieja in Havana, Cuba.
The Havana sights you can see in this video, in order: Ministerio de las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias (the Ministry of Revolutionary Armed Forces) and the José Martí Memorial across from the the Plaza de la Revolución, Necrópolis Cristóbal Colón (Christopher Columbus Cemetery), Avanida Salvador Allende, Iglesia Del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus (Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus), Simón Bolívar Avenue and Paseo de Martí aka Paseo del Prado, Havana, Cuba, and of course lots of Cuban classic cars.
I filmed the Havana classic car taxi ride on a day in April, 2016. But I saved it until now as a little overview of the neighborhoods, to which I’ve dedicated individual videos over the last year.
If you’d like to watch those individual Havana videos:
Scott and I actually took numerous taxi rides, in all kinds of unique vehicles while in Havana. One shot from another ride snuck into this video. Other shots from other rides, you can find in other of my Cuba videos. I almost included some footage from the backseat of a Lada taxi as it squeezed its way through the narrow and crowded alleys of La Habana Vieja. But the feel of that footage was too different. I may release it as a behind-the-scenes video for my Patreon supporters.
If you’d like to look at photographs from this ride and our time in Havana, there are plenty to be found here:
If you’d like to purchase any prints of my Cuba photos… I’m in the process of setting up an online photography portfolio that will make it very easy for you to purchase any prints. In the meantime, please let me know, via a comment or email, which photos are your favorites so I can make sure I upload them to the portfolio (no pressure to purchase, of course).
