saratoga hotel explosion havana cuba

The hotel explosion yesterday in Havana was the Saratoga. In 2005, we spent an afternoon exploring that area.

Our 2005 pic shows the green Saratoga as seen from the steps of the Capitolio (Capitol Building). The other pic is a recent news one from granma.cu moments after the explosion.

When I heard of the explosion today, the first thing I thought was that Miami did it. Probably not true. It looks to have been a liquefied natural gas explosion.

I’ll be waiting to see what happens to the building. You know it will break hearts to see it come down.
