Old Havana

For 7 days I walked the streets of Old Havana always in the late afternoon. My goal was to find the light Cuba eradicated, i found it and i loved it. The mixture of pulse, contrast, architecture and people on all sides. Moments of mutual coexistence, jokes, games, music and movement. Simplicity and creativity of a welcoming people, who do not deserve to go through so much shortage of essential goods. A country unlike anything you can imagine, both for its geographic location and politics where its greatest wealth lies in its citizens.
