HAVANA, Cuba, 31 August 2011 — AU Abroad students take a break from a tour of Old Havana for a group photo. They are standing in La Plaza Vieja, or “The Old Plaza,” which is being renovated in a bid to recapture its colonial-era splendor. This area of Havana is a favorite of foreign tourists who flock to Cuba each year.
