Strawberry and Chocolate is a movie released in 1993. It was shot in Cuba at this very building. The building is a favorite to photograph, however, in neighborhood where we are told to stay close to the bus. I was peeking out the window while others were shooting the iconic stair scene when I saw a red truck pulling into the garage. I quickly ran downstairs to see what was going on. Much to my delight it parked to load the debris from the renovation going on. Within minutes of making a few images, the truck pulled out and was on its way.
On another note, we’ve just had a cancellation for our Tuscany/Venice Tour in May. It was not listed on the tour page as it was full before we announced it. If you’re interested in joining us, please send an email and I’ll send you the details. It is a 10 day tour starting on May 23rd ending on June 1st.
