Cuban Communication. Face to face - not Facebook to Facebook.

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Cuban communication. People still have time to stop on the street and talk. Life seem to be relaxing, unhurried. When neighbours or friends meet on the street, they always hug, kiss of shake hands.

Cell phones are starting to made inroads, but it is still only few people use them. Nobody is seen on the street texting or yapping on mobile phone.

One fellow Canadian gave 2 surprised school girls his bit out-of-date laptop. From their expressions, I am sure, they had no idea, how they are going to use it.

First thought, "a cool dude", but that probably betrays how out-of-touch I am! Whatever, super 'street' photo. I like very much.

Happy New Year, Brian.
