The Obamas’ tour of Old Havana was nearly a washout on Sunday evening as a deluge of rain came down minutes after they landed in Cuba for a historic three-day visit to the communist country. The first family pressed on, despite the stormy skies, strolling through the Plaza des Armas as they huddled under umbrellas and made their way to the Museo de la Ciudad, the museum of Cuba’s capital city, and on to Havana Cathedral.
President Obama’s family – particularly his daughter Sasha – looked less than pleased as they perched underneath their blue and black umbrellas. As the Obama’s taxied towards their motorcade, the president wrote on Twitter: ‘¿Que bolá Cuba? (What’s up Cuba?). Just touched down here, looking forward to meeting and hearing directly from the Cuban people.’
