In Focus: Cultural Cuba

Cuba

Kristopher Kelly’s photography not only captures the sites of our Cultural Cuba tour, but also the energy. His photos rumble with the rusted mufflers clogging Old Havana, the smell of cigars in Viñales wafts from them, and your mouth waters for the rum in Trinidad – Daiquiri, anyone?
