Notes:

Havana, Cuba - A vintage gold Chevy drives along El Malecon while waves crash along the seawall. Vintage American cars are seen throughout Cuba, a throwback to the days before the embargo. Before the Cuban revolution, there was a strong US presence on the island - both culturally and commercially. After the revolution, trade ceased and the influx of cars stopped. With a limited supply of new cars due to embargoes and limited buying power due to the economic situation under communism, Cubans have held onto the vintage automobiles by necessity for many decades. These cars are generally referred to as yank tanks or maquinas and often used as taxis. El Malecón is the avenue that runs along the seawall at the northern shore of Havana, from Habana Vieja to the Almendares River. During sea storms, waves can be seen crashing over the seawall onto the street as seen here.
