I am not, nor have I ever been, much of a souvenir shopper. On my first trip to Europe I remember buying some items which I never looked at when I got home. I prefer to let photographs be my memories. Taking pictures of the things tourists buy is enjoyable for me, however. Havana is full of shops selling all manner of stuff visitors believe represent this fascinating nation. Some of it is interesting, especially the art, but most of it is tacky.
