Classic Cars Cruising in Havana

No, I did not travel back in time to 1955 to get this shot. Truth is, you can probably witness this scene pretty much every day in Havana. These classic cars are in pristine condition and being driven everywhere. I actually think you will find them in much better condition in the smaller towns outside […]

Motorcycle on a Trinidad Street

A quite little cobblestone street in Trinidad, Cuba. At any given time, you might see kids in uniform on their way to school or an older lady taking care of daily chores. This day, it was pretty quite. Just a motorcycle, myself and the colorful scene. Click photo for a big surprise
