View of Cuba Today, part 6, Mancaragua


Recommended Posts

One of my favouite all time posts!

You have to love the picture of the boy riding the "Titanic" ....it looks like it will go down like a Qantas jet any minute :lol2:

Your pictures capture the essence and "life" of everyday Cubans better than any others I have seen. For all their poverty they have a richness (strength) in community and extended family that I envy greatly.

Thank you :clap:

This is such a treat for me, thanks so much for sharing. Ive taken so many cruises by cuba and been able to see the island from a distance and I always wonder what life is really like there. These "real world" photos are really great.

Hi everyone,

Welcome back to View of Cuba Today.

This time we will visit the small town of

Mancaragua at Villaclareno, on the road to

Havana, where we stoped off for a refreshment.

We happened to stop on the day they were having their local

Feria and Rodeo, so we steped in with the gang and had a

great day. As you will see, It's not Texas but it was so friendly

and with such a great reception we will never forget.

This town,by the way, is very close to the town of Baez,

from where Don Pepin Garcia,of Don Pepin Garcia Cigars,

grew up and worked in Cuba.

The local star at the Rodeo is a 6 years old boy that you will

see in the pics. He is really something, the boy has real talent.

Hope you'll enjoy.
