    Just arrived back from Cuba. I'm still sorting through all the pictures, but managed to upload the first batch from Havana. I came back very impressed by the friendliness of the people and the beauty of the places. It is a quite surreal environment due to the old cars and general, almost organic decay of the urban tissue, but the colours and the light! A photographer's heaven. Here is something of what I managed to shoot (it was not a photographic trip...). For those who want to see more, there's an album on flickr.

    Enchanting stuff, we in the US don't know much about what Cuba is like typically. Fascinating!

    Very nice. Thanks for sharing. I really enjoy the abundance of old cars.

    Thanks all! Robert, the first two days I could not believe what I was seeing - the number, shape and colours of old cars there is amazing.
