Havana to Cienfuegos

Mar 10, 2018 - Harmony V

After an inspirational performance by Grammy-nominated El Septeto Nacional last night, the group awoke to gentle waves along the malécon, Havana’s romantic seafront.  Some took a tour of the Columbus Cemetery, while others visited the Revolution Museum in Old Havana.  It was sad to say farewell to Havana and the Hotel Nacional, but precious Cienfuegos, “the Pearl of the South,” awaits us.  Soon we will be greeted by the sweet voice of the choir “Cantadores del Sur” before embarking Harmony V for our voyage across the southern coast of Cuba.
