Uber - Cienfuegos Style

Post by minniev » Fri Nov 16, 2018 8:01 pm

I’m not sure this will even post. I have found only scraps of internet service in Cuba, and pM is the most impossible site to reach. Each time I try, I get a message that the site may have moved. Where did you all go?

Nonetheless, I will try. My Cuba photos are not going to be of display quality, even when I get home and have all my fixit-tools. Most are taken at high speeds and ISO from moving conveyances - taxis, buses, or these wonderful little carts that may be pulled by a horse, a mule, a truck, a tractor, or a bicycle.

Because many of them have what I believe to be good story stuff, I will share them anyway. Cuba is beautiful, friendly, and fascinating. Of all the places I’ve visited, it is the most “unlike anything else” place I’ve been.

Minnie, This brings me back to the late '60s when I lived in the boonies, in the city of Naga, in the Philippine Islands. The streets were dirt and lumpy and muddy and crowded. It was a bumpy ride, often with the odor of dung wafting from the dump bag behind the pony. But the buggies, they called them taxis, were colorful like this photo. Unfortunately, I didn't own a camera so I have nothing to show.

Sounds quite similar. Cuba’s cities are a puzzle too. I’ll post more when I get home. Not much internet available, usually I get timeout before a page can load. I have lots to share!

Framing from a moving bus is impossible, it is mostly impulse and rescue work.
