Cuban Food & Drink by Harry williams

The food in Havana was delicious.  Most meals were eaten out of people's homes called "paladars" , where you would find the best home cooked meals. I am more of a wine drinker but the rum in Cuba is ridiculous, three dollars for a 3 year aged rum,  7 year aged rum was around 5 dollars a bottle.  Meals for 2 with a couple mojitos usually would cost around 30 bucks.  Can't wait to try and make some of these dishes.

These sandwiches are what most locals had for lunch, prices are in Cuban peso which literally would translate to around .30 cent a sandwich  

Faces of Havana by Harry williams

March 2017

During my last trip to Cuba, I focused on portraits.  I used only a fixed 50mm lens which required me to engaged with each person, usually taking the photo from only one to two feet away.  I typically show portraits in black and white but in some cases the surroundings and the people lent themselves to color.  Let me know what you think and follow me for future posts on Cuba.
