    Not as sexy as it sounds. Ran a sweaty 13 miles through the scenic and pig-corpse-strewn streets of Havana two weeks ago.
    Pics per Stew Nod's request. Took much better ones, but these were snapped during the run:

    About two minutes into the run, over bridge near the river by our hotel. Half Pint and I did a short trail run along its banks the day before. Very pretty area, but very polluted too.

    Colon Cemetery, about a mile into the run. Lotsa famous dead Cubans there, by local standards. No one I'd ever heard of. :no:

    No, but I did pick up Batista's gold phone to admire it and get a sense of its weight.

    No jelly required.
    Was there on vacation for a week, and to drop off some medicine for a hospital hurtin' for psychiatric drugs.
    Training for a 100-mile trail run in May so needed to get some miles under my belt while we were down there.
