Pieces of the Countryside

Photo Feature by Caridad

HAVANA TIMES, Oct. 21 — A hen scratching the ground, a group of palms, a small wooden house, lots of greenery and a mosquito net over the bed at nightfall, these might be the details that come to mind when anyone mentions the word “campo” (the countryside).

But for others it could also conjure up backwardness, too much heat, absolute boredom, poor working conditions and low living standards.

For me, at times, it’s is the buzz of an insect, the chance to see more of the sky, to breathe easily and to admire the colors, people and animals that don’t abound in these cement prisons that we know as cities.
