English version is down below

Hace unas semanas hicimos un viaje a Cuba, concretamente a la ciudad de Santa Clara. Como muchos de vosotros sabéis, Cuba es mi país natal y el de mi familia. Aunque yo soy de La Habana, mi chico es de Santa Clara y hacía muchos años que no íbamos.

Su familia no conocía al pequeño en persona, así que aprovechamos que tuvimos unos días libres y nos dimos un saltito hasta allí. Es una ciudad encantadora que bien vale la pena conocer, y que es muy famosa por encontrarse allí los restos de Ernesto Guevara, más conocido en la reciente historia de Cuba como Che, entre otras cosas.

No sé si conoceis algo de Cuba, pero allí la vida es diferente, debido a las condiciones, de más está deciros que el pequeño fue quién mejor la pasó, ya que tenía una libertad que desgraciadamente no le podemos dar a los niños en otros países, disfrutó de una manera impresionante y yo solo con verle lo hacía a la par de él. Montó los habituales carruajes de caballo y también los de cabras entre otras cosas.

Uno de los lugares que visitamos, es el monumento a la toma del tren blindado. Este tren fue utilizado para enviar refuerzos y armamento a la ciudad que se encontaba sitiada por las tropas comandadas por el Che. Es un lugar encantador y si algún día vais por la ciudad merece la pena visitar por toda la historia que guarda y porque al ser un lugar al aire libre, los niños pueden correr y pasársela bien.

En este lugar se hizo historia durante la batalla de Santa Clara, cuando Ernesto Ché Guevara y un grupo de jóvenes revolucionarios hicieron descarrilar un tren blindado con una excavadora prestada y cócteles Molotov caseros. Esto supuso el fin de la dictadura de Fulgencio Batista y dió paso al gobierno de Fidel Castro.

El suceso es recordado con este museo de vagones de carga que señala el punto exacto donde se descarriló este tren y 350 soldados fuertemente armados fueron desalojados de éste . La famosa excavadora también tiene su propio recordatorio allí.

A pesar que disfrutamos de unos días cálidos, el clima estaba estupendo para andar por la ciudad, creedme, he ido incontables veces a esa ciudad y nunca habíamos andado tanto como esta vez. Este día especialmente nos hizo un calor bastante fuerte por el nivel tan alto de humedad ambiental; era prácticamente imposible estar en la calle, pero había que aprovechar nuestros días al máximo y para que nuestro pequeño conociera un poco de la historia de la tierra de sus padres.

Para la ocasión elegí éste vestido de Free People con escote mesonera que os tengo que reconocer que es una maravilla, de lino, perfecto para días largos y calurosos como ese. Lo combiné con estas sandalias rojas de tiras, que ya sabeis que me encantan, por lo cómodas que son y os reconozco que nunca las había usado para andar tanto y han pasado la prueba de fuego amigos, versátiles, pues no importa con que las llevéis combinadas, lucen preciosas con prácticamente todo (AQUI). Como accesorios, este bolso de raffia que ya sabéis que es el que suelo llevarme en mis viajes por su comodidad y su capacidad sin límites, collares dorados y maxi pendientes rojos.

¿Os ha gustado el look? ¿Conocéis alguna ciudad de esta maravillosa isla?

Some weeks ago we make a short trip to Santa Clara, Cuba. As many of you already knows, it’s the country where I was born and grew up. Even when I’m naturally from Havana, my husband is from Santa Clara and we haven’t visit the country for many years and his family did not know our kid personally, so taking into account that we had some free days we decided to expend this time there. It’s a lovely city that I really recommend and it’s very famous because it’s where are the remains of Ernesto Guevara mostly known in the recent Cuban history as Che, among others interesting things.

Life there is so different in comparison with the rest of the countries we use to visit, I have to admit that our kid had a lot of fun, He was completely free to run, and he rode horse and goat carriages. He was so happy! Unfortunately, here we can’t leave him play outside without taking a look of him, we didn’t do it there either because he is so little already but when he grow up we can do it. I have so many great memories of my childhood…….

One of the places we visited was the place known as Toma del tren Blindado (The capture of the armored Train) Monument, it’s a beautiful place that I really recommended not only for the history that this place have but also as a landscape park so if you have children they can have so much fun freely.

It’s a place where a very important event took place during the Battle of Santa Clara when Ernesto Che Guevara and a group of young warriors derailed an armored train with a borrowed digger and homemade Molotov cocktails. This event brought an end to the Batista dictatorship and the beginning of Fidel Castro’s regime.

This historic event is commemorated with a museum of freight cars on the right place that this happen, marking the place where the train derailed and 350 armed soldiers were tossed over. The famous digger is also memorialized there.

Even when we enjoyed of warm days. the weather was great for make some tourisms around the city, I had been there so many times that I can’t count them, but never I walked so much like in this visit. Cuba has a similar climate as Miami, so the high humidity level is almost unbearable, especially that day.

For the occasion I chose this linen dress with the bustier inspired bodice that I have to admit that is so amazing, flowy and fresh that even when it was so hot I did not feel uncomfortable at any moment. I paired with my red sandals that you already know that I love them because they are extremely comfortable, I’ve never wear them to walk so much, but guys believe me, they pass the fire test (HERE). To accessorize my outfit I added this raffia bag that you have seen it so many times around here because it is my favorite bag when I travel, it is so comfortable and huge, so I can put inside a lot of things, a couple of golden necklaces and these maxi earring give to my look the final touch.

So, tell me guys, Do you like it? Have you visited this amazing island?

  1. Cuba esta llena de ciudades muy hermosas. Santa Clara tiene su encanto a pesar de no ser una ciudad costera como La Habana o Santiago de Cuba. Cienfuegos y Trinidad son otras otras ciudades de la costa sur con un toque especial

    1. De acuerdo totalmente con cada cosa que has dicho. Su encanto radica en que se ha quedado paralizada en el tiempo. Es un maravilla
