  • I thought I'd find in works of Wilfredo Lam, I found a photo exhibition, for me of little interest, of staff there were but they couldn't see why around there were offices, and this has been pointed out, perhaps you can invest 2 cuc n a good local beer, discouraged.

  • The foremost centre for contemporary art in Havana. Right next to the Plaza Mayor, it's house in a beautiful colonial building. It closes early so show up before 3 pm!
  • The yellow courtyard of the Lam - the space that opened the door and welcomed us to do our weekly penalty, was the yellow courtyard. A site where gold dust, according to Rafa fell our soundman.  There took place the magic. Each week came people to share his art: singers, actors, painters. Here joined us a guitarist of filin, Yoyi, who brought the bonanza of this genre to our door and is was accompanying us on this journey to share the evening with artists and which was discovered as such. It was a place of freedom for many, including me.
