In his white suit and hat, the six-foot-four red-headed television host Conan O'Brien was anything but inconspicuous as he walked the streets of Havana. 

The trip took place in mid-February but aired last night. 

Conan's clips include: a visit to a rum museum, rumba dance lessons and a jam session with a salsa band. It was all in the goofy, awkward and self-deprecating humor that Conan O'Brien fans expect.
