to watch the cannon fire but wasn't sure with this weather if should go or not. Meet up with a girls from the tour and we shared a taxi out to the old fort site. It is the large imposing rock structure. Paid entry and hired a guide to show us around. The guide was amazing he spoke English really well and knew so much about the site and history of Cuba. We visited the old church which during restoration works they had uncovered humans bones buried in unmarked grave below the floor. Then walked up to the top edge of the fort and there was an amazing view out over the city at sunset. There is little light pollution in Havana, which is really noticed when looking at the city skyline in the evening and just the lack of light. I guess u also notice when walking at night there are few street lights. Visited a small Che museum inside one of the old prison cells. After the revolution he had an office in the fort as part of his role in the new government. Headed back out to the fort wall to watch the cannon ceremony. It is a world heritage site as the cannon has been shot every night since the 1760 when the fort was built. It was used to signal the closing of the harbour with a chain dragged across the poet entry to stop pirates entering Havana. About a dozen men dressed as colonial soldiers presented the ceremony. As it was raining there were no crowds so we could watch right up close. Been so close almost meant that when the cannon was fired it was incredibly loud. You could feel the sound wave hit your body. Was fun to watch though even if I may have lost some of hearing. We then looked through some more museum with the evolution of weapons. Some the knives were created with such detail from Europe. Took another walk around the fort area to look out over the ocean as the rain has cleared so was a nice cool night. Got a great old ford taxi back into the city from the fort. They played the old music and had a sing along in the back seat. Had a drink at a bar in old town listening to some music before saying goodbye and heading to the hostel for the night.
