- Coconut delivery in Playas del Este. Hang out on the beach long enough and someone will offer to sell you cold beer, kites, tamales, grapes, even freshly caught fish.Met these two near the Almendares River picking up cans and bottles. The man was down on his luck, perhaps as poor as anyone I have met in Cuba. But his dog was very well kept and rode on top of the cart.I was going through some of my pre-digital photos of Cuba from the 1990’s and came across this one of a woman who worked at the now closed Cuatro Caminos market in Havana. I asked if I could take her photo, she said yes and smiled. I didn’t even get her name before she went back to work. All these years later it still amazes me the connection that photography can make.Born to be wild.Now it’s a party.A different kind of fireworks.Celebrating the election of Andres Manuel López Obrador in Mexico tonight, the first leftist to govern the country in decades.A nice July 4th party at the US Ambassador’s residence tonight after a complicated year for US-Cuban relations.Enjoying a few days away from Cuba with my two favorite travel buddies. Thanks to @tracybarry1 for letting us use her golf cart which reminded them of home.Looking out at the Guantánamo Navy Base from Caimanera, Cuba.Feeling World Cup fever in Havana... Even though Cubans traditionally are baseball fans, football is catching up.Shipwrecked in Baracoa... this is where Columbus first landed and was the first settlement and capital of Cuba. It wasn’t connected by road to the rest of the island until the 1960’s.Fishing in Guantánamo bay.For its proximity to the Guantánamo Navy Base, the town of Caimanera is known as “the first anti-imperialist trench.” Despite saying they are ready to fight to the death, the people there are actually quite nice. Thanks for the photo @eliapontePharmacy in Baracoa, Cuba. The part made from wood on the bike is a seat for a child, a very clever Cuban invention.Cuba built a provisional bridge over the river Toa after the old one was swept away by Hurricane Matthew. A new bridge is now near completion (I was standing on it to get this shot).Down to the river.Finally made it to the Punta de Maisí, the Eastern most point of land in Cuba. Some say it’s the beginning of the island, others say it’s the end.The crab man of Baracoa.Faces of Camainera, Cuba.
