A Glimpse of Cuba: Home Depot in La Habana

Most Habaneros live with the reality that when a pipe is beyond repair…that the electric wires short out…a glass breaks…that it won’t be easily replaced. Stores just don’t carry the items necessary for home maintenance…

But when a building collapses…and after every major tropical rainstorm and hurricane there are quite a few that go down…there’s a run on the “home depot”… the resourceful Cuban knows that the ruins are recyclable.

    I hope to visit Cuba one day and be able to document the local day to day life of such special people. Your work from Cuba is really amazing.
