We’ll never see the likes of these again! But Cuba still has them – by the hundreds. It’s just amazing to watch them go by, and a flashback to the past of my parents and grandparents; way, way back. These shots were all taken last week with my iPhone, when I was in Cuba visiting the Jose Marti Institute of Journalism in Havana. Enjoy! Click each image individually to enlarge and refresh for a random reordering of all the pictures. This is what “embargo” looks like.
I've just started reposting here after a nine month absence. Look for some nice changes to the site and regular updates on U.S. intelligence, privatized spying, Korea, Japan and music. My pages section at the top (just below that incredible photo from South Korea in 1960) includes links to much of my work on Korea, Japan, etc., over the years. Meanwhile, follow me on Twitter @TimothyS and read my blog at TheNation.com.
