Scene from Havana january 2008.
If you feel like a different sightseeing tour in Havana I would recommend you to put out your hand when a “Botero” passes by!
This is a collective taxi, almost always an old US made prerevolutionary wreck that runs along a fixed route. The price is next to nothing but the experience can be worth a lot.
The Boteros are not supposed to pick up tourists but they do anyway!!
