in the garden

A kind gentleman saw us photographing through the fence and invited us inside to look around.

If I am correct about our location, we’d found the Seminario de San Carlos y San Ambriosio*. But I could be mistaken. When I’m traveling, I like to keep up with my location on my phone: I am A Person Who Reads Maps. I like to know where I am, and I like to be able to see where I am compared to other landmarks. Cell service (through my provider) was non-existent in Cuba, which meant I was unaware of where I was. Sometimes, I can use my memory about landmarks that were nearby to roughly gauge where I was, and that’s how I *think* I know where this photo was made.

And here’s something maybe you don’t know: online maps do show Cuba, but street views are not available. In case you were wondering about that.

Havana, Cuba
photographed 11.7.2022

*The actual seminary is now located outside of Havana. This building currently houses (among other things, probably) a Catholic primary school.
