A Few Days in Cienfuegos, Cuba – Pt II
As mentioned in my first post about Cienfuegos, the people here are something else. This gentleman above is a great example. He had a few black birds singing away in a cage outside his door off Paseo del Prado. As I stopped to take a photo of the songbird, he came to the door and we ended up chatting for a good twenty minutes. His smile reflected the genuine warmth and interest in us three travelers – myself, my partner Sandra and my brother Jon. While I took his portrait, another fellow across the way called over to direct me to another potential photo – a dog rolling around on the sidewalk in the falling light. Both turned out great and we ended up talking to him for a while, too.
Strolling back to our casa, the shadows deepened, the music picked up and the heat of the day gave way to a clear, starry night. Our residence at Hostal Colonial had a glorious rooftop patio – perfect for watching the sun go down over this beautiful city and the equally stunning Bahia de Cienfuegos to the south. Here’s the second batch from my Cienfuegos ‘citybook’ collection….enjoy!
