Peace Studies Mission
While I have PLENTY of thoughts and photos to share with you about my incredible trip to Cuba earlier this month, right now I only have time to offer a few of the pics I took. Each picture has a story, which I will include for you to read sometime. They aren't in any particular order right now.
- the group: me and my fellow Peace Studies Missioners in the Havana airport
- a painting of Che, whose face is all over Cuba -- on buildings, walls, shirts, paintings, postcards and more.
- a young boy whom I met at a cafe near the Plaza de la Catedral
- a man selling fish
- three kids at the Havana nursery school we visited
- an open marketplace selling books
- the view from our hotel
- a group of young singing Cubans
black & white photos:
- looking out across a Havana courtyard through the arch of a building's balcony
- Varadero beach: black & white film doesn't do it justice, for this beach has incredibly gorgeous blue ocean water and fine white sand.
- two boys standing behind me at the speech/rally
- a view of Havana from the roof of the Hotel Capri
- the wonderful family I stayed with the last two nights we were in Cuba
- Yasser y Gelsie: two fabulous guys my age with whom I spent an afternoon -- walking, talking and eating lunch -- after I spontaneously met them in mid-Havana
- inside the office of Pedro's friend; part of a photo gallery collection (which includes the original print of Ché's famous portrait)
- part of the crowd of a student rally march we participated in, walking through Havana to celebrate the 40th anniversary of a student revolt right before the revolution
- the rally ended up here, at the Plaza de la Revolucion
- this photo shows you my view of the speakers on the steps
- I enlarged the previous picture to show you the main speaker in the center: Fidel Castro!
- inside a Santaria (a sacred place for an Afro-Cuban religious sect), this man shows us his temple for the gods, as he is flooded with sunshine from a nearby open door
