Why do I love Cuba? The people. This year, I knew a bit more Spanish and was able to communicate a little better. Not great, but enough to understand just how important it is to learn more for my next trip. The woman on the right in the image above caught my eye, she was beautiful. When I engaged her, she was proud to tell me she was “noventa tres” or ninety three. I smiled and said, “mi madre tambian es noventa tres” or my mother is 93 also. This led to a longer conversation of which I did not understand much. That simple connection lead to smiles and gratitude for the Fuji Instax picture I took and left with them. The woman on the left is her daughter. The hands below belong to her mother. What a story they tell!
