El Capilla del Hombre - The Chapel of Man.

This place was a pleasant surprise today. One of those placews that make you go 'oh wow' when you weren't expecting it. It is a chapel / art gallery created by Ecuadorian painter Oswald Guayasamin. Unbeknown to me, a portrait of Fidel Castro that I was admiring while waiting at the Cuban Embassy for a visa yesterday was also done by Guayasamin.

The quote above says something along the lines of "I cried because I had no shoes but then I met a boy with no feet."

Freaky shot of the eternal flame.

Some of Guayasamin's paintings.
