In addition to being a wonderful country, Cuba has the Cubans. As trivial as this statement may seem, I think that to understand this unique and mysterious place it is crucial to know its inhabitants. People who have everything on paper but that really have nothing in real life. If not the pride of being Cuban.
In this reportage I wanted to paint the ordinary cuban. The Cuban who is struggling everyday to get to tomorrow. You won't find any beautiful Lolitas here, nor the desperate faces of those who have lost everything, social assistance included.
Viva el pueblo de Cuba.
