Was it called The Seaview Hotel Chad?
gutteridge: No.
A rather exciting view I'd guess!
gutteridge: Well it was good to get this perspective on the city Elizabeth.

Nifty Condor's view of the place, Chad.
gutteridge: A good way of describing it Ray.

I thought that was a dog crossing the road down there Chad but it's a shadow from the traffic lights
gutteridge: Good observation Tiff, I had not noticed myself but can see it clearly.
I thought the same as Chris but he's the one who figured it out. HA! Lots to see here,, Chad. I'm picturing what it'd feel like to walk from your hotel to the sea.
gutteridge: I give you equal credit Ginnie, and as I said to young Tiff, I had not noticed until he mentioned it. Quite amusing isn't it.

That is what I call 'a room with a view'...
My ques is that the Iberostar Parque Central hotel was the tallest hotel on the block?
gutteridge: I can't remember but sort of think you are right Astrid. No detail seems to escape your sharp attention. I think that you should have been a detective. This is not from a room but from the rooftop schwimbad- see tomorrow's snap.

It's all looks like it has seen better days. I'm not inspired to visit, I have too say.
gutteridge: You would be wise not to visit sir Alan, but I am glad I did, just to see such a strange place. I would never go back. Compare my pictures with those in a tourism brochure. There pictures might have the edge, but mine are just honest.

A very interesting view, befitting b&w. It reminds me of the older parts of Lisbon.
gutteridge: I can see what you mean about a similarity with Lisbon.
Cubans learned bad news last week when the US President announced that travela nd other restrictions would remain between the US and Cuba.
gutteridge: Another hammer-blow.
Yup. Havana certainly looks... what shall we say? Under-developed?
gutteridge: That is a kind way of putting it Tom.
The colonial style buidlings in the foreground are quite attractive but in general the view overall doesn't inspire one to explore much.
gutteridge: This place would look fabulous, like it once did Brian, but I fear it will take massive investment. With no banks or loans in this cash-only society, and outside investment banned, I can't see how they are going to get a leg up.
