Last visit to Havana’s Cemetery

Cuba Day 3

It was very restful, spending a half day in the nearly-deserted Cementerio de Cristóbal Colón away from the noise and bustle of Havana and the constant contact with my fellow photographers. We each went our separate ways within the cemetery and I didn’t see any of them again until just before it was time to gather at the front gate.

A sense of calm.

A resting place.

This is the last in a series of six Thursday posts on this cemetery.

  1. He does look exhausted .. the picture with the dog is special

      I think the dog was there with a younger worker, someone who wanted to practice his English with me and then asked for a donation towards his education; he was one of the few people we met who asked outright for money.

    I was in Havana recently and drove by the cemetery without going in even though it was on my to do list. Glad I can see your photos here.
