18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Los niños

My mom and I were walking through the streets of Old Havana, and we saw these little boys playing. The poverty in Cuba, especially Havana, is overwhelming, but what struck me about the Cuban people is their warmth, generosity, and determination for happiness, regardless of their hardships. Seeing these little boys playing, for me, captured that spirit.
