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.

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).

Calle met the correspondence chess IM César Revuelta Capablanca, a son of Capablanca's cousin.
