Cuban staircase

I guess even the most spectacular, most historic of stairways become boring after a while ...

My flickr contact Michael Greenwood did a great job framing this historic staircase.

Two female staff look bored as they gaze over the grand white marble stairway entrance to the Museo de la Revolución in Havana.

Those steps look pretty now but in 1957 they were flowing with the blood of students who died trying to storm the palace and oust then President Fulgencio Batista – you can still see the bullet holes even though someone has tried to fill them in.
