Wandering around Old Havana (Habana Vieja), Rocío and I stumbled upon a shooting gallery. Blasting a series of bullets with a rifle cost little and was obviously aimed at locals (the business, not the bullets). The sign outside stating ‘Educate your child’ (Educa a tu hijo) supported this assertion.
Propaganda decorated the gallery’s walls including images of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, two heavy firearm users during the 1950s Cuban Revolution.
Rocío didn’t want to shoot or even pose with a rifle. While not a gun fan, I don’t mind having a shot. On this occasion either the firearm needed calibrating or my aim wasn’t straight, probably a combination of both. Either way, Fidel and Che wouldn’t have been impressed.
