At the initial signs of the first incoming storm of the Caribbean’s hurricane season, the residents of the surrounding blocks and neighborhoods of Havana’s Malecon will come together for a unique event and celebration. Teams of 10 habaneros each, representing a city block, building address or social club located in the close vicinity, will participate in the collective turning of a boardwalk into sea walls.
在加勒比地区飓风季节的第一场风暴初现迹象时，Havana’s Malecon周边街区和社区的居民将聚集在一起举办一场独特的活动和庆祝活动。 每个代表 10 名哈瓦那人的团队，代表附近的一个城市街区、建筑地址或社交俱乐部，将参与将木板路集体变成海堤。
The people of Havana have a history of turning one thing into another due to economic scarcity, epitomized in the phrase “resolver” meaning to solve, addressing necessity through practical ingenuity. The turning of a seafront boardwalk into a flood prevention mechanism fits into this strategy that is very representative of the city’s culture and innovation.
