Cuba is a dream for any photographer. But it’s a nightmare for anyone who wants to stay connected with the rest of the world. The internet must be one of the worst in any country I have ever visited. Even Western Sahara which I visited earlier this year could offer better internet connection. Internet in Cuba is both unreliable and for the most part extremely slow. That’s why I have managed to take care of only the most important emails while visiting the Caribbean island. Otherwise I would have been spending hours in front of the computer. That’s also the reason I have been absent from any blogging. Even though I prepared a post by uploading pictures before leaving for Cuba and then just having to add an updated text, I still decided it would take too long to even make a try. Sorry for be away from the blog sphere.
Nevertheless I had a great time in Cuba. It’s a fantastic place to visit and Cubans are extremely welcoming. I visited my second family in Viñales, the farmers I have stayed in contact with for 20 years. And I spend time with my colleague and friend Sven Creutzmann planning new exciting photo workshops for next year (and upcoming years) – which I eventually will get back to. Of course I photographed, too, but this time it was much less about photography than brain storming and planning.
I still haven’t had time to edit the pictures from this trip to Cuba, so I will instead post a handful from previous travels. The new pictures will come in one of the next posts. And, again, sorry for not having been able to follow up on all you my blogger friends.
