“Welcoming, accepting, colorful, friendly, passionate, lively, loving, family, and beautiful,” are all words that should be used to describe Cuba. However, words cannot even begin to embody what this country holds in its history, land, and, most importantly, its people. An experience of a lifetime. Yes, the latter sounds cliché and we did those things too. We smoked cigars, made a visit to Ernest Hemingway’s abode, rode in classic American cars, and photographed school children running around. Nonetheless, conversing with the inhabitants and hearing their stories were far from cliché.
The romanticism unique to this place radiates everywhere. Whether it be on a crowded street or on the white beaches, Cuba breathes.
