Photo Feature by Juan Suarez

HAVANA TIMES — Yesterday afternoon walking along San Benigno Street in the Havana municipality of 10 de Octubre I noticed that on the first two corners of the block garbage was piled up on the street. At first I wasn’t surprised since such is commonplace in the Cuban capital.

However, I kept walking and at the next corner on the right was greeted by another pile of trash. On the left was more garbage. I walked just five blocks and took twelve pictures of different corners all littered with garbage. Flies were the masters of the streets. Have a look at the pictures, the images speak for themselves.

  • hola Juan, it was a pleasure to walk the streets of Havana with you, enjoy the URBEX

  • I hired a car and freely travelled around Cuba going through towns and Cities .The only garbage seen was after the May 1st marches all piled up after the event.People living in the towns were often out cleaning around the area they lived, their houses/flats needed restoring but like little palaces inside .The Cuban people/children were clean healthy and happy.

  • Your sense of humour is a little bit callous, don’t you think?

  • The Cuban authorities keep the streets of the tourist zones clean & garbage free, but the outlying barrios are a disgrace. The clean streets of Habana Viejo are the “staged photos”.

  • Looks like MANY street corners in many major cities around the world. People just won’t pick it up anymore, not even the people being paid to.
