Santa Clara

Landlocked and located in the geographic center of Cuba, Santa Clara is a University town with an amazing sense of energy. Narrow streets are lined with pizza shops, ice cream parlors and little cafes, crowded with horses, bikes, motorcycles, cars and buses going waaayyyy too fast. I spent 5 days in Santa Clara, having planned only two, staying up too late with my university friends, playing baseball in the main plaza till 6am, dancing, drinking and exploring off my hangover the next day.
