Thanks a million Agi !! Must have been a great experience and with lots of "mojitos" too ???? ^__^

The Plaza de San Francisco is the second oldest square in the city.The Lonja del Comercio (Chamber of Commerce) building in Old Havana served as the stock exchange in the capital until the 1959 Cuban Revolution. Today, it is an office building. Based in the building are local and foreign companies, the Brazilian Embassy, news agencies like CNN Havana Bureau, and the Habana Radio Station.

 Havana is the capital city, major port, and leading commercial centre of Cuba. The city is one of the 15 Cuban provinces and the largest city in the country. Contemporary Havana can essentially be described as three cities in one: Old Havana, Vedado, and the newer suburban districts. Present day, the city is the center of the Cuban government, and various ministries and headquarters of businesses are based there.
