Post Card from Cuba

Not addressed to me. Found in a box of stuff
at the Sustainability Project house on the campus of the University of Ottawa. It was one of several but I only have one in my possession.

Note the cars from the forties and fifties. Cuba has virtually no new cars.

The post mark does not reveal the date of this card
so it's impossible to tell when the stamp of the Ducati Monster 900 was issued. The Ducati Il Mostro was produced in Bolgna, Italy from 1993 on and was the creme de la creme of sports bikes with it's tubular steel frame encasing a six-speed V-twin with desmodromic valves. Only 370 pounds (dry). My, how that bike would fly.
