Cuba: Day 6

12 February 2007

Urban sketching in Cuba.


Early morning traffic on the main street in Camagüey, from the balcony of the Hotel Colón. No cars; just pedestrians, bicycles, and “bicitaxis”.

Sancti Spíritus

The church, Parroquial Mayor del Espíritu Santo, and a statue to Don Rudesindo García Rijo, a 19th century doctor who treated the poor for free. He was murdered by the other doctors in the town for taking away their business. The stall is selling papier maché cars and airplanes.
