  • Cinefuegos dirty crumbling city on the bay.the water of the bay is so polluted it stinks and makes the city stink when the wind is blowing off the water.these poor unfortunate downtrodden people. They are wonderful,friendly,generous , and kind.Go to Cuba for the people , help them ,be generous, meet them , talk to them,.
    Your pictures are genuine to a heart renduring lump. I know cuba , we know many people , we have been in every town village and city in every province and your photos capture the essence. You have to see more and take and publish more.
    Congratulations.
