A wall threatens to fall a few meters from the Havana cemetery

The collapses and deteriorated houses are not only a thing in Old Havana, just two wooden supports support the weight of a wall in poor condition on Zapata Street that borders the Colón Cemetery, in El Vedado. Passersby constantly pass through the area and this Saturday, an old woman – walking stick in hand – was walking a few inches from the dangerous wall.

“Grandma, stay away from there, you could fall at any moment,” a young man recommended to the lady, but the wall was not the only problem. The deteriorated sidewalk did not give many possibilities to the woman who ended up resigned to waiting for the traffic to slow down to cross the street.

Zapata is not just any avenue. A few meters further on it approaches the Plaza de la Revolución and is a frequent route for official vehicles. Now, from the closed windows of their air-conditioned cars, the Cuban leaders will see the wooden shoring and some walkers risking their lives near the deteriorated wall.
