PEOPLE OF CUBA
I VISITED COMMUNIST CUBA IN MARCH 2017.
PRIMARILY I WAS INTERESTED IN CUBAN LIFE AND PEOPLE AND NOT SO MUCH IN THE BREATHTAKING CARRIBBIAN LANDSCAPES.
I LIVED WITH CUBANS, EAT AND TRAVELED WITH THEM MOST OF THE ISLAND. SO I GOT A SMALL IMPRESSION OF WHAT IT IS TO LIVE IN THIS SOSIALISTIC PARADISE ISLAND.
Josie Alonso's HOUSE
SOME GO TO NEVERLAND. SOME VISIT GRACELAND. I GO TO JOSIE ALONSO’S HOUSE on Calzada Street In Havanas Vedado neighborhood, where Photographer’s Icon Annie Leibovitz shot Rhianna for Vanity Fair 10/15.

ON OUR WAY BACK FRIM CIEGO TO HAVANNA we stopped in a picturest little village called Trinidad. During a walk through the alleys along the colourful buildings from the 17-19. Century, you feel like you are on a journey through time, which shows you the glory and prosperity of a town, that became rich with sugar and slave trade.
