Miami’s Little Havana


We drank fragrant Cuban espresso, watched elderly gentleman playing dominoes in Domino Park and marveled at a master roller sculpting huge leaves of tobacco into cigars at Cuba Tobacco Cigar Company in Miami’s Little Havana.

We heard tales of desperate escapes from Cuba from artists and from Roberto Ramos, owner of Cuba Ocho Art and Research Center. After being jailed three times for collecting pre-revolutionary art, he escaped in 1992, smuggling out 14 works of art.

That evening, we drank mojitos in the courtyard at Ball & Chain and danced in the plaza at Cultural Fridays, a monthly street festival.
