Harvesting Tobacco – Vinales Cuba

Vinales, Cuba

Vinales, Cuba

This very photogenic and cooperative man was picking prime tobacco leaves and fastening them to long poles where they dry, outside, for a couple of days before being moved inside into a barn (more photos later.)

The photographer in the photo below was not with our group; he told me he was from Pennsylvania. He already had bought the T Shirt!

The lady in the bottom left of the photo below WAS with our group – but the tobacco worker smiled at me!

    Tobacco is quite beautiful, isn’t it?

      And the farms we saw were perfect – they are definitely tourist show places, but still, there seemed to be no pests or wilting. Since Cuba grows organically (they’ve had no money for anything else) it is really impressive.
