With the recent news regarding US/Cuba relations, I felt it appropriate to post a collection of photos from the two weeks I spent there in February of 2014. I’d always wanted to travel throughout Cuba and on a whim I decided to make it happen. I did some research to figure out how I could get into the country without being on a tour (shoot me a message here and I will share some tips on the process), and off I went.
When I arrived in Havana I felt as if I had been transported back in time to the 1950’s. Antique cars, pockmarked buildings, and vivid colors filled the streets. Everyone I encountered was friendly, and while I was initially unsure how my presence would be received, everyone warmly welcomed me as an American. Over the course of two weeks I explored Cuba by bus – from the tobacco fields of Vinales to the bustling sea port of Santiago, all of my experiences were amazing and beyond what I could have imagined. If Cuba is on your list of must-visit destinations, I highly recommend visiting sooner rather than later. Take a look through the photos and enjoy!
Oh, and please excuse the radio silence of the past months. Since we last spoke I’ve traveled a ton, occasionally stopping in NYC and LA, and am now settled in San Francisco. I completed the first semester of my MFA in Photography at the San Francisco Art Institute where I have been working on some exciting new photography projects. I’m thrilled to get back to blogging more regularly, and have a bunch of new photos from Asia and Latin America to share in the coming months.
