Neighborhoods, streets, people and a few stories of Cuban life; plus a good coffee will make for a day free of worries and stories to tell. Cuba today is a gigantic reality show for all who visit it; an old car still running with real actors, forgotten commercial techniques, an old lifestyle, a mixture of culture and nostalgia for those who have left. All this is transmitted 24 hours a day and works perfectly, providing security to those who participate despite the shortcomings and emotions. With the best intentions, I wait for you and share a life experience and some excellent photographs.
