To feel safe we need something to protect our doors and windows.

And there is nothing better than an iron trellis.

One thought on “Havana Behind Bars

  • very nice photo essay Juan. As an American visiting Cuba you hear that the crime rate is very low. This makes one wonder why the need for the bars? Was there a period in time when the Cuban people felt unsafe and decided to protect themselves and their property?
