After collecting my suitcase from the luggage belt, I headed through to meet my taxi driver my Airbnb host had organised for me. I then tried to use the ATM but it unfortunately was having problems, so I queued up at the airport cambio (currency exchange) to exchange some euro's for Cuban convertible pesos (CUC).

Arriving in Old Havana after the ~30 minute ride from the airport.

My Airbnb flat for the next two nights. It was in a great location and only a few minutes walk from Plaza Vieja.

And the main bedroom with the all important (and super cold) air conditioner. It was my first time using Airbnb and for only $37 a night I was very satisfied.

I was super tired after the red-eye flight but with the excitement of arriving in such a unique and interesting place I had seen in many photographs and films, I grabbed my camera and headed out for a bit of a walk.

Dos seņoras.

While alot of them needed some maintenance and repair, the weather-worn buildings with peeling paint were all part of the charm of Old Havana.

Tendedero (clothesline).

Lamparilla Street.
