#Treetuesday - Coolest tree shades

in treetuesday •  last year

In the Vedado neighborhood of La Habana, Cuba, lies the cemeterio de Cristóbal Colón.

The mausoleums are spectacular - I found an especial liking in the trees which dispensed most pleasant shade in the burning, tropical heat of La Habana!

This is a tribute to Cuba via #treetuesday - A special place which is uncertain of its future.

The name might suggest that this could be a special place. Honestly, I have never seen a cemetery as elaborately built as this one. With over 500 mausoleums, this place attracts thousands of visitors every day. Flowers at the mausoleums and graves are changed seemingly every day. Locals come to visit their family members and heroes from the past.

Much love,
Mike
