  3. Have to admire the discipline that it takes to become a successful Mime. They always
    seem to be crowd pleasers wherever they perform!
    Great capture of the 'Old Man'.

  7. There must be sufficient tourism to support such street performers.

    1. Much to my surprise, Cuba has many, many tourists...few from the United States, however. I met many Europeans while there and Canadians have been going there for years. Thanks to our economic embargo (shame on our government!), Americans cannot frequent the Island as we might if our government's politics were different.

  8. The first really does look like a sculpture until you catch the twinkle in his eye

  9. This surprises me, too, as I would not think of Cuba as a tourist haven. I agree with you about the embargo. If that had any legitimacy, we should have embargoed China, too. What a difference that would have made! :-)

    I'm really impressed with the fellow's outfit. Very well done!

  13. The first one in particular had me fooled - unless it really IS a statue?!?!
