Calle Erlandsson in Cuba






At the beginning of January our friend Calle Erlandsson returned to Sweden from a two-week trip to Cuba - just in time to take successfully part in the ChessCafe Holiday Quiz. We would like to show you some of his photos he recently sent us.



Calle am Capa-Grab
A duty visit for chess historians - Calle Erlandsson at the grave of J. R. Capablanca at the "Cementerio de Cristóbal Colón" in Havana.



Capablanca's grave is decorated in a manner befitting his rank - with a large chess king.


At the pedestal below the king the inscription with Capablanca's name is visible (see picture below).
