Surfing in cuba

2. Golden. Untouched light blends well with old cars passing Malecon. The evening light was soft and almost fabulous throughout the city. 3. A look through time. Even for a visitor who first arrived in Cuba, like me, the island gives the feeling that you came to a place that you remember from childhood and these memories have not changed at all. 4. Down every street. The streets were filled with crumbling buildings mixed with new ones. It is a pity that I could not walk along every street that we saw, since it seemed that on each street there were new interesting things to study. 5. Lingua franca. This mother is looking out for her children who played soccer on the street. We were lucky, we played several matches with them and they liked it. No matter where I travel, football seems to be a universal language that I can always speak with the locals. 6. From above. The roofs offer an interesting view of the heart of Havana. 7. Guide. Our driver was the guide, he became the key for us to get to where we wanted. 8. City architecture. Elements of Spanish, Moorish and French architecture slip through Havana. Each street brings a new flavor and new look. 9. Always on the streets. Rain does not scare people in the streets. No matter the time, there are always crowds on the streets of Havana. 10. Even a match. Two taxi drivers find time in a lunch break for a chess game. There was a draw this time. 11. Malecon. Malecon has always been the center of social life throughout the day. Locals jump from the cliffs into the ocean. 12. Long talk. Often a short “hello” turns into a long conversation. This man told us a lot about his country and its people. 13. Hairdressing. Cubans cut their hair short. This local boy did not understand why he so interested me. 14. Parting. A local boy says goodbye to his friends after jumping from a cliff and swimming in the ocean. The Cuban equivalent of a water park. 15. Malecon. Again, Malecon is the perfect place to look at people. 16. American iron. Until recently, it was allowed to trade in the open market cars built before 1959 (the year of the Cuban revolution). This means that Cuba’s automotive landscape is abundant in classic American iron. 17. Repairs. People are already so used to having these old cars that repairing them is just part of their everyday life. 18. Lighting. There are parts of Havana in which there is very little street lighting. The sun is a precious thing when it comes to city lighting. Daylight disappears slowly, and the city takes on a new look.
