The Grand Duchess of Havana

By JaneMIchelle
"The Grand Duchess of Havana"..........This is the lady who owns the mansion where we shot the ballet dancers, she was born here and has lived her whole life at the house....she has been offered over 1.5 million pounds for her house ( a true fortune in Cuba where the state salary is about 20-30 per month) , but won't sell as she wants it to stay in its original state. Her father had it built over 90 years ago it was constructed in concrete, unfortunately the metal rods that support the concrete have started to corrode so unfortunately the ceilings have started coming down in sections throughout the house.......I think it would be a very expensive and very difficult job to make the repairs required.

A strong image.
A sad tale, though.
