Here is a selection of photos that I took on the streets and in a bar in Havana, Cuba during my visit to the island nation in July 2011.  The quality of the images is not so great.  I just had a crappy little camera at the time.  Nevertheless, I like the shots and they remind me of the great days I had walking high and low through the streets of Havana, sweating ’til my shirt was drenched through and clung to my skin.  I shouldn’t blame the equipment anyway.

    1. Yes, I have read your Cuba articles. Most Cubans now are very much looking forward to the opening up of the economy and the consequent benefits. The heat in July was oppresive.
