For well over 50 years Cuba has been under Communist Rule. Look carefully, you who hate capitalism this is how you are going to live. All turning to dust, Before Death.

Capitalism is the only thing that makes our lives barable and comfotable. No ,you don't think so..........then try going "without", and let me know, how Great it was. :roll:

How Havana is collapsing, building by building

By Tracey Eaton and Katherine Lewin | Special to USA TODAY 10:47 a.m. PST Dec. 2, 2018

HAVANA — Rafael Álvarez was up at 6:30 a.m. to warm milk for his baby daughter when he heard the sound of pebbles falling.

“That’s when the floor below us came loose. We were left hanging in the air, then fell into the abyss.”

Álvarez, 41, a baker, was buried in rubble to his waist. His mother, daughter and two others were killed when the 101-year-old building collapsed.

Excerpts From Article:

Some 3,856 partial or total building collapses were reported in Havana from 2000 to 2013, not including 2010 and 2011 when no records were kept.

The collapses worsened an already severe housing shortage. Havana alone had a deficit of 206,000 homes in 2016, official figures show.

Today, daylight shines through terrifying cracks in the walls.

“This is worse than a pig pen,” Flores said. “It’s rotting.”

The third-floor staircase collapsed in April 2017.

“It was a tremendous explosion – boom!” second-floor resident Yuslemy Díaz recalled. “People on the third and fourth floors were stranded because they couldn’t get down. It was a madhouse.”
