Crossing the Havana Bay on board of the local ferry in a rainy winter day could make us think for a second that we are touring a Baltic city. But the conversations of the other passangers and the view of the coast are a constant reminder of where we are.
The Regla Ferry, as it is known locally, is one of the most peculiar means of transportation in Havana. It is also the cheapest, at only 20 cents of a Cuban peso – an amount so low that it would be pointless to convert it into dollars. The ferries look very old, but they are safe, and have a certain charm.
Through their dirty windows, the view of the city can be inspiring, beautiful… A parenthesis in the middle of the noises and traumas of this city.
