When going to Cuba, you are going to see urban blight in first place. But also you gonna see restored, colorful houses,places and cars under a mostly blue and slightly cloudy sky. This is fascinating enough by itself!
Before starting to Cuba I got new lenses for my Ray Ban to see properly also in sunny weather conditions. Offensichtlich, my dependable optician, advised me to take a new kind of glasses: „skylet“ (skylet road) by Zeiss. They are supposed to make a stronger contrast possible. At home in greyish winter Berlin I didn't really get the difference. But when I put my glasses on for the first time in Cuba, I knew what Offensichtlich meant and I loved it right away. I felt like being in the perfect vintage world: the sky was wonderfully turquoise and the environment was covered up in super warm colours. My travel mate didn't understand why I got so excited about my new glasses, so I tried to show her what I see by taking pictures through my sunglasses and showing her.
Up to now I can only find one disadvantage: reality without my sunglasses is finally not as nice as with them even if you are in a sunny caribbean environment.
Back in Berlin I got to make a walk through snowy parks and streets on a sunny sunday at -12°C. And even here everything seemed to be warmer, clearer and more colourful.
I love to see my world through my new glasses, makes it less grey... more beautiful!
