Cuba Va! Part 3

One more!

Here is a video from one of the nights at Havana's carnaval when Althea, Betty, and I went to visit our old friend. We walked from Jesus' house down to the water then up around the streets to the yard at Hotel Nacional (just for the views! not to be confused with the bourgeois patrons!). There was a flash rainstorm moments after I shot the last clip. Mayhem ensued so quickly that both Althea and I thought there had been an outbreak of gunshots. Later on a friend of a friend drove us back to Caimito in his mercado negro side hustle government vehicle. We were stopped by controls on the highway - causing a momentary freakout for all involved - but we made it back to camp safely with ease.
