In February 2019 Virginia and I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go to Cuba for a week. Most of this time we were part of a Backroads.com people-to-people activity tour. The first and last nights we were on our own in Havana.
2019 was the 500th aniversary of the founding of the city of Havana. It is also the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution. The Havana 500th anniversary and street art of Havana is the subject of my November blog post.
This page will link you to the various photographs that I made while on this Cuba trip. All of my Cuba photographs that are currently avaiable for sale as wall art or printed on other items can be found in the Paul Rebmann Cuba Photography Collection at pixels.com.
