I, Zeb the Duck, spotted this motorcycle.  Like any guy, I asked my friend Channel, to go for a ride.

Here we are on the motorcycle.  But we do not have the keys.

Inside this school, we see some finished work

and listen to the plans and accomplishments of the school and the students.  The Sociedad Grafica de Cienfuegos is similar to a City College.   The print shop’s mission is to provide activities and support for children with Down’s syndrome.  The finished pieces were created here, with this equipment.

The students and faculty are very talented and dedicated.

We cross the patio to enter the gallery or sales room.   Many paintings are available for purchase.  There are masterpieces available in the patio also. Here my friend, Connie, admires some pieces of art.

This building was constructed between 1913 and 1917.   Near the entrance, I spot a resting place for me.  Short duck legs require many resting spots and this one is perfect for me.

We enjoyed a delicious fish lunch and then wandered through the Palacio del Valle.

Palacio del Valle has a gorgeous upper patio.  If there were more time, later I would ask for a drink and snacks here.

Beautiful area

But we return to Havana tonight, so no snacks here today.  From this patio the views of the Caribbean Sea are wonderful.

This building has restaurants, patio with bar and food, a museum and rooms for rent.  Palacio del Valle is beautiful.  I hope you visit here soon.
