Havana at 500: riding in a 1959 Chevy

Yosbel Sosa, 33, drives what he calls a “time machine” — a black Chevrolet Impala with red and white seats, dating back to 1959, the year of late leader Fidel Castro’s revolution.

In it, he drives tourists around the city’s historic sites: the restored dome of the Capitol, the colonial mansions, Art Deco buildings, Revolution Square and the picturesque Malecon seafront promenade.

Cubans line up to mourn death of Fidel Castro in Havana (360 Video)

People are gathering near the Jose Marti Memorial on the north side of Havana’s Plaza de la Revolucion to honor the memory of Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, who died at the age of 90 on Friday.
