Aviator Alberto Santos Dumont made in 1906, a flight of about 220 meters with the first pilot- and first wristwatch. This watch was created in 1904 especially for him, by his friend Louis Cartier. So what better watch could I take, than my own Santos Dumont, to come with me on my trip of seven and a half thousand km. across the Ocean. It was Havana this time where I was heading for. A place that has been on top of my list since many years and I thought, I better plan my trip now, before the international fast food chains and fashion brand stores get a chance to open up here and spoil the beautiful facades, in this amazing, historical city.If you have not been to Cuba yet, be prepared and take your time. Passport control and customs clearance took me over two hours at this fairly small airportBesides Airbnb, Havana has a large range of hotels and more and more modern boutique hotels are opening up, in renovated historical buildings.
