CUBAN BICYCLE TAXI
Cuba- A surprise around every corner !
Santa Clara, Cuba has a Central "Town Square" in the typical Spanish style.
It has Trees for shade and long benches for seating. The locals meet there.
The School kids in their immaculate uniforms eat lunch from their plastic box. Drink from their recycled plastic water bottles. They talk, they laugh. No cell phones. No gadgets. No skateboards. Nice - well behaved kids.
The Retired men have their corner. They wear their good clothes to meet their friends. Probably putting the world to rights ! And the Tourists wander through with their Cameras and Phones and no one bothers you. No hands out for charity.
Santa Clara is a prosperous Town in Cuba. Famous for its high quality hand made shoes.
They have Boulevards of shops - with goods for sale. That's quite a rarity in Cuba !
You'll see 1950's American Cars. New Chinese Cars, Buses and Bicycles. But mostly you'll see everyday folks, walking in their best clothes. Ladies with their parasols and the men with their heavy loads balanced on a Bicycle while they walk alongside.
