Havana, Cuba for Looking at the city through a convex lens (Da Vinci's Convex)

Check out Da Vinci’s Camera Obscura perched above the city. I loved it!1 It’s a super cool convex lens that warps your view of the Havana streets, yet lets you view it all in one go too. He was recorded to have said: ‘Here the figures, here the colours, here all the images of every part of the universe are contracted to a point, what a point is so marvelous’. For only CUC2 you can while away an hour seeing the city change on the corner of Plaza Vieja, Havana. It’s a strange experience that’s difficult to explain, but don’t look it up, just do it!
