This cheerful young lady stopped briefly to have her picture taken and moved on to meet her friends. In the first photo she is framed by two of our photo workshop party.

Social media, when you can get it, is important to the student generation. At the Wifi in the park near our bed and breakfast (casa particular) the other users were also mostly young.

Must be a Wifi zone nearby!

I love the contrast in generations.

I didn’t look for shots of children – and they were largely in school when we prowled around Central Havana. These next two shots were taken on the Sunday when we went to hear Afro-Cuban music on Callejon de Hamel.

It was fairly late in the afternoon when we walked down this street; children were home from school and playing soccer.

On many streets in Havana cars are parked, which, on closer inspection, you can tell are under repair, and are probably not mobile. My orange Plymouth favourite was one.

Several times we came across cars that were being worked on.
