HAVANA, CUBA (MARCH 27, 2017) (REUTERS) GENERAL VIEW OF THE MALECON SEAFRONT, ROAD, CARS TOURIST BUS CROSSING IN FRONT OF CONSTRUCTION ZONE FOR "PRADO Y MALECON" HOTEL GENERAL VIEW OF MALECON AND HISTORIC BUILDINGS WITH CONSTRUCTION CRANES ANTIQUE CARS ON THE ROAD (SOUNDBITE) (English) ITALIAN TOURIST, GIOVANNI PASQUALI, SAYING: "We noticed this construction on the coast. Seems like to ruin a bit the atmosphere of the main road. But at the same time, I have the impression that it will attract more tourists and many buildings that we have seen are quite old and not in a good status and seeing that they're working on some of these buildings, turning them into hotels, can be good in the end for the city."
