A land of adventure, utopia, rebels and revolutionary heroes for some, dictators for others, Cuba is made of contrasts and paradoxes. With its rich cultural heritage, its stunning architecture, with the outstanding beauty and hospitality of its people, it floats in the air of Cuba like an enchanting atmosphere, with an intense present balanced with an obsolete nostalgia, as if time stopped there for good some fifty years ago.

I landed in Cuba in the beginning of December 2016, just two weeks after the death of Fidel Castro.
