DOCUMENTARY CUBA HAVANA BEACH US Embargo on Cuba Impact pn 2013-2015 TARARA SUBURB HD PHOTO HISTORY TOUR: + Che Guevera’s House (for a Year): In a Habana Cuba suburb via Tropicoc Hotel havana. Tarara, a beach town, the US embargo,on Cuba still overshadows many neglected casas (houses) today, an effect is still evidenced everywhere on this foresakened island & in this Cuba documentary discovery photo video de Cuba by the Hemingway Wannabe CJM
MUSIC: neilcross, “The New Vision” — YT Audio
The beach “town” residential suburb of Tarará, 15-20 k east of Central Havana and just a stone’s throw from the Tropicoco Hotel Havana, has been relatively quiet since the Cuba Revolution, some 55 years ago, when its capitalist occupants, [some of whom may have been] friends of the ruthless Dictator Fulgencio Batista regime, were dispossessed. Most of the time since then, the U.S. Embargo impeded Cuba’s oft-impoverished government from maintaining it, so it fell to ruin. Projects to pick up the pieces come and go. NOTE: Much has improved since Jan. 2013, when I took these photos.
Beginning in the 1940s, 400 residences of Tarará were developed by an American millionaire [wannabe?] Sylvester Webster, who moved there. In 1958, he and his almost 20 family members, were evicted at gunpoint [reportedly– see “Tarara” in Wikipedia].
Che Guevara, who suffered from asthma, stayed for a time in Tarará twice in 1959.
From about 1990 to 2010, Ukrainian child-victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster were treated and housed in Tarará.
Currently, young Communist Chinese are studying Spanish etc. there.
Tarara, like its adjacent leftover bunkers, missile huts, and machine gun nests (SEE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJNkmYu3WWQ ), might tell us Cuba has been too poor to clean-up the result of its past 50+ blockaded years.
Sadly, so it goes with tropical pawns in a cold cold war.
UPDATE: Tarara has been much-improved since these photos were taken. If you not American, go see for yourselves. If you are an American, you’ll have to wait for the lifted embargo veil to reveal the truth of this 50+ yr-old hate crime on Cuba, or pay your “democratic” CIA-driven gov the 0,000 fine for the privilege.

WORLDS MOST EXPENSIVE HOTEL – EMIRATES PALACE in ABU DHABI – LUXURY TRAVEL Inside TOUR
The Emirates Palace is a seven star luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Emirates Palace is located on 1.3 km of private beach and surrounded by 85 hectares of gardens, with 114 domes that are 80 meters high. It is a 30 minute drive from Abu Dhabi airport and 1.5 hours drive from Dubai airport.
The building was designed by architect, John Elliott RIBA, who was Senior Vice President at Wimberly, Allison, Tong and Goo, (WATG) an international firm specialising in Luxury Hotels. It opened in November 2005 but certain restaurants and spas did not open until 2006. The hotel was built by and is owned by the Abu Dhabi government, and is currently managed by the Kempinski Group.
The costs to build the hotel were 3.9 billion GBP or 11.02 billion AED or about 6 billion USD. The Emirates Palace occupies 850,000m² of floor space. Underground parking allows housing for 2,500 vehicles. There are two swimming pools and spas. The hotel has its own marina and helipad. The Emirates Palace is the second most expensive hotel ever built, only surpassed by Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
Room rates at Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace rose by more than a quarter last year as guest numbers topped 150,000. A 26 per cent rise in rates helped revenue per available room — the standard measure used by hotels — reach one of its highest levels since it opened in 2005, said the hotel manager Alexander Schneider.
“Despite the opening of many other luxury hotels and resorts in Abu Dhabi, Emirates Palace has continued to achieve a very high performance over the past years,” said Mr Schneider.
The hotel, meanwhile, hopes to raise its international profile further — as a backdrop for film productions. “Emirates Palace is the only venue in the region qualified to offer a unique backdrop for film shootings and to curate a movie premiere screening in its auditorium at the same time,” Mr Schneider added.
Abu Dhabi is expected to add as many as 6,000 new hotel rooms over the next three years according to CBRE Middle East, the property broker.
“There is still a lot of supply to come up but that also makes it far more affordable than Dubai and travellers from within the UAE will remain one of its key markets,” said Matthew Green, the head of research and consultancy at CBRE. The broker expects hotel occupancy in Abu Dhabi to rise from about 65 per cent in 2012 to about 70 per cent this year.
Emirates Palace is currently focusing on Chinese, Indian and Latin American markets as Etihad Airways funnels more travellers from those countries through the emirate. India is Abu Dhabi’s largest tourism market in terms of the number of guests.
Emirates Palace has also become a popular wedding venue for families from India, Russia and China, said Mr Schneider.
The capital’s flagship hotel is owned by the Government of Abu Dhabi, and is managed by the Geneva-based Kempinski Hotels.
Abu Dhabi hotel operators are benefiting from rising visitor numbers to the country.
In November, Abu Dhabi National Hotels (ADNH) reported Dh842 million in operating revenues, an increase of Dh93m during the first nine months of the year compared with the same period in 2012. “forbes rich list” “London luxury shopping” billionaire millionaire Monaco “super rich” “private jet” yacht entertainment “luxs report” us usa America uk London “Donald trump” Dubai elite executive arab ceo forbes Europe vip money lil wayne travel “5 star hotel “super car” bugatti Lamborghini Ferrari Porsche private jet 2014 2015 monaco luxury “get rich” gambling investment Beverly Hills Malibu Miami “positive thinking” “super yacht” “mega yacht” “playboy mansion” “luxury lifestyle” mansion “emirates palace”

The company recorded gross profits of Dh95.7m and net profit of Dh58.8m. ADNH’s total assets were Dh9.62 billion. Its hotel division, which includes internationally branded owned hotels and its own Al Diar brand, and the retail unit were the main profit generators. The latest additions to ADNH’s portfolio to come on stream this year — Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas, Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach and Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal — led the charge to top the hotel division’s revenues to Dh562m, compared with Dh468m during the same period in 2012.
Travel video about destination Cape Town Beach in South-Africa.
During the days of apartheid, the Muizenberg beach was off limits to blacks. They could only go to beaches abandoned by the whites : beaches that were too dangerous, or shark-infested… After apartheid, a white man decided to initiate poor black kids in surfing, to get them off drugs. One pupil even became world champion, to the delight of the whole community. Social rifts still exist, however. The Camps Bay beach is for the wealthiest, obviously mostly white, whereas the blacks tend to go to the Muizenberg Beach. In the evening, however, they all frequent the bars, restaurants and clubs along the Camp Bay promenade. As violence is still prevalent in South African society, the security measures are particularly tight here, to protect local citizens and visitors alike…
