Staying with Havana, this picture from Tony. There is so little traffic in Havana, cars being hard to come by, that an accident must be an unusual event. Your'e more likely to see broken down vehicles being worked-upon by their owners and I came to the conclusion that every Cuban male is an expert motor mechanic, capable of repairing any vehicle with some string, wire and tobacco leaves and help from passers-by.
I see that the city is on the BBC news this morning having won a United Nations award for its restoration programme. There's an awful lot still to do, as you can see from my photos.
