It’s been nearly a year since my trip to Cuba and my failure to write a travel entry on the country (tisk tiskkk). In all fairness, most of the trip turned out to be a near disaster and I did not want to write an entry based on a negative impression. So instead I’ve decided to present the beautiful country of Cuba through some of my favorite pictures from the trip.
