<b>A city of tropical heat, sweat, ramshackle beauty, and its very own cadence--a city that always surprises--Havana is brought to pulsing life by <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Mark Kurlansky.</b><br /><br />Award-winning author Mark Kurlansky presents an insider's view of Havana: the elegant, tattered city he has come to know over more than thirty years. Part cultural history, part travelogue, with recipes, historic engravings, photographs, and Kurlansky's own pen-and-ink drawings throughout, <i>Havana </i>celebrates the city's singular music, literature, baseball, and food; its five centuries of outstanding, neglected architecture; and its extraordinary blend of cultures. <br /> <br /> Like all great cities, Havana has a rich history that informs the vibrant place it is today--from the native Taino to Columbus's landing, from Cuba's status as a U.S. protectorate to Batista's dictatorship and Castro's revolution, from Soviet presence to the welcoming of capitalist tourism. Havana is a place of extremes: a beautifully restored colonial city whose cobblestone streets pass through areas that have not been painted or repaired since long before the revolution. <br /> <br /> Kurlansky shows Havana through the eyes of Cuban writers, such as Alejo Carpentier and José Martí, and foreigners, including Graham Greene and Hemingway. He introduces us to Cuban baseball and its highly opinionated fans; the city's music scene, alive with the rhythm of Son; its culinary legacy. Through Mark Kurlansky's multilayered and electrifying portrait, the long-elusive city of Havana comes stirringly to life.

Mike and Jürgen gave themselves three months to explore the small Caribbean island of Curaçao, and came away with some unforgettable memories and photographs. This book is a collection of their anecdotes and adventures from the island, as they tried to live like locals. 91 days was enough time to explore this small country thoroughly; Mike and Jürgen checked out almost every beach, visited the colonial Landhuizen and ventured out on a few hikes. Packed with helpful advice, restaurant tips, insights into the culture, and beautiful full-color photography, this book is a must for anyone planning a trip to Curaçao!
