Street Scenes from Cuba

Evening Sales by Sharon Popek

I have always loved to travel. There are quite a few places on my must go to list and I have to admit that Cuba was never one of them. But several years ago, I had the opportunity to spend a week and half there. I am so glad that I did. I would go back in a heartbeat if given the chance. The people were wonderful and inspired an optimism in me. You can read more about my Cuba experiences here.

This image was taken after the Cannon Ceremony at La Cabaña fortress in Havana. The crowds of people had vanished and this vendor was looking for one last sale.

Bay of Pigs

We had stopped for lunch at a Paladares (a restaurant in a home) at the Bay of Pigs. The ocean views were beautiful. But I was taken with the small houses and the people.

The streets are as narrow as you would find in any old city. But the large windows and bright sun shining down created a warm, open feel. The people weren’t in a hurry, never pushing or prodding.
