For seven days I walked the streets of Old Havana, always in the late afternoon. My goal was to find the light Cuba eradicated. I found it and I loved it. The mixture of pulse, contrast, architecture and people on all sides. Moments of mutual coexistence, jokes, games, music and movement. The simplicity and creativity of a welcoming people who do not deserve to go through so much shortage of essential goods. A country unlike anything you can imagine, both for its geographic location and politics, and where the greatest wealth lies in its citizens.
