Playa Santa Lucia transportation is not revolutionary. Tradition still prevails. This looks like an US Gas station, but usually they would not display pics of Dubya Bush, Dicky Nixon and Willy Clinton.

Playa Santa Lucia Gas station. Not a very common sight on the highways of Cuba. This gas station was almost North American in its appearance and function. It had a convenience store with all kinds of junk food and a fast food restaurant attached to it.

The horse and buggy, just went past. No oats or hay was sold at this station.

The horse drawn cart, is still a prevalent transport in the small town. This one was selling tomatoes and other home grown vegetable, driving through a village and shouting out the names of vegetable in a sing-song voice. Famous song depicting this habit is 'El Manisero' (Peanut vendor)

This pregon (cry or shout) is traditional way dating back to 18th century, when many different immigrant cultures came to this island.
