“Apparently, it’s only until recently that people have been allowed to get their photo taken in front of the Ministry of the Interior of Cuba (Police, Intelligence, etc.).”

“View of the city of Havana from the El Morro Castle”.
From Wikipedia: “Morro Castle (SpanishCastillo de los Tres Reyes Magos del Morro), named after the three biblical Magi, is a fortress guarding the entrance to Havana bay in HavanaCuba.”

    Apparently, it’s only until recently that people have been allowed to get their photo taken in front of the Ministry of the Interior of Cuba (Police, Intelligence, etc.).”……

    sorry that is just not true. I was in Cuba in 1999, and have a picture in front of that building. Taken by an official Cuban tour guide.

      I can confirm this as well (i.e. that there was not previously a ban on pictures in front of that building). I have a few from 2003 (when in Cuba on a student visa).

        I took pictures there in 2002 and 2011. And there were uniformed Cuban soldiers around in abundance.

    kind of creepy. Che was worse than Trump.

    • Let’s not give him the chance to find out, mmk?

      The caption seems to indicate the photo is taken in defiance of the Cuban government and its figureheads: “Apparently, it’s only until recently that people have been allowed to get their photo taken in front of the Ministry of the Interior of Cuba (Police, Intelligence, etc.).”

      • What I meant to say is that now it’s ok to do it and in the past it wasn’t.

          Pablo, what does it say on the building? I can’t quite make it out…

            Hasta la victoria siempre

            Thanks!

        • Truxton Thomas

          OK, my mistake.

      • huh?

        How can something be in defiance of the government when the government explicitly allows the act?

        • Truxton Thomas

          Because the practice had apparently been forbidden by the state for some time? Anyway, I was wrong. Forgive me.

      Yankee ignorance

  • Lookin’ good, P!
