Havana crosstown traffic taken from within a Coco taxi. A Coco taxi is a three wheeled motorcycle/ moped with a driver and two passengers. The streets of Havana have polluted air because of the old engines in the cars. The Coco is probably not a good choice if you have bad lungs.
Our driver was awesome. I had to get registered for the marathon but I didn't know where. We went to the stadium and our guy went in with us and played Spanish translator.
We got half way thru the stadium and went in an office. The president of the marathon was there! He told us where we could register. We also got to see olympic high jumper Sotomayor. Well... we did actually only see his red Mercedes. (:
Than we went back to the old part of the city to get registered and our guy drove passed the cool spots. Very enjoyable ride.

An interesting daily life shot here. The POV is very interesting and the colors and lighting well adjusted.
