When you walk through  Havana, under a blue sky of fantasy, abundant vegetation and surrounded by people always prepared to lavish hospitality, you will be already preparing yourself for the loving courtship. Because to conquer and to raise the winning stage of the heart, you will have to have look for an ideal scene for the fight. And it is there, in the scene, where I want to arrive, my  my grandmother use to repeat:

“a place for each thing and each thing in his place”

And the ideal place in Cuba is a balcony

The problem is  choosing it suitably. If your couple is is simple, friend of the detail and with no vanity, a simple balcony could satisfy him or her. Instead, if your couple is a little more demanding you could find a balcony with a rich artistic work in its exotic grates and many plants would be better. One of those balconies that go of end to end of the construction and until doubles the corner. But if his adored torment somewhat it is gotten depressed, bring him or her to a balcony with glass work of many colors, through which the sun makes magic. That it also owns view to the sea and a considerable height, thus will see smaller the conflicts.

In short, he chooses the balcony that better adjusts to its plan. He will not delay in finding it, because in there are them to Cuba by hundreds. It happens that as we lived in the Caribbean and we are an island, we always counted on the benefit of the marine breeze and where better to enjoy the fresh air that in a balcony?

It is until life one becomes different when observes it to one from above, from where watching the champions.
