CUBA 🇨🇺 #tbt
The travel and destinations were a highlight of my trip. #TravelWithYourCurlfriend •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• This may look like a stone with some words on it but believe it or not, this is a Cuban street sign. We were so lost on Day 1. 😩 No navigation, No cell service, No Spanish. We couldn't figure out why there weren't any street signs and how in the heck did everyone know where they were going! Well #Curlfriends , THIS is their street sign. We were looking up the whole time until Day 2. I looked down and said "Ummm, babe! That says "Linea" like the map. 🤔 Wait! Are the street signs on the ground? 🤦🏽♀️" As we looked around, they were on the corner of every street. 😂 #ItsTheSimpleThings

#cuba#havana#lahabana#vedado#coloncemetery#cementeriodecristobalcolon#cemetery#cementerio#ameliagoyri known as #lamilagrosa died during childbirth on May 3, 1903, at the age of 23. According to the legend, the baby did not survive either and both, mother and son, were buried in the tomb, which the inconsolable widower, José Vicente Adot y Rabell, visited every day. Day after day, for many years, Adot faithfully visited the tomb of his beloved ones, whose deaths he never accepted by thinking that Amelia was asleep, so he used to wake her up with three knocks on the tomb, a sort of secret signal of complicity between the spouses. The day the remains were to be exhumed, witnesses saw that the bodies were intact and, in a symbol of maternal love, Amelia was holding her son in her arms, so the tomb was sealed again and has remained like that until today. The legend of La Milagrosa inspired Cuban sculptor José Vilalta Saavedra, who in 1914 made a beautiful life-size sculpture of Carrara marble, representing a young woman looking up in a gesture of faith. The statue's left arm is holding a baby, while the right arm rests on a Latin cross, which is regarded as a symbol of sacrifice. As the legend of "La Milagros" spread throughout the city, Havana residents turned Amelia's resting place into a shrine where they could ask for protection for their children, for childbirth without complications or even for descendants for couples with no biological possibilities of conceiving, a habit that has survived until today.
Гаванское кладбище Колон, ⛪️оно же Некрополь им. Колумба. Кто-то скажет, что такие места сомнительны для любования ими. Но оно безумно красивое! Во-первых, оно, точнее он, некрополь(☝️️) огромный - около 55 га ( это порядка 550 000 кв.м!!) ! Во-вторых, чего только стоит вход - потрясающей красоты арка! Даже этот жёлтый забор с белыми крестами вдоль всего кладбища кажется довольно симпатичным. Внутрь мы к сожалению не заходили, но проезжая мимо, успели немного подглядеть, что за забором. Исключительно белые надгробия, памятники, мавзолеи и мемориалы! Казалось бы - кладбище, но там и правда так все аккуратно и красиво! Туда водят экскурсии. Есть на что посмотреть)
