Near Baracoa's waterfront, I loved walking along this strip of weathered buildings. The texture, mellow colour and obvious age sang like the blues. Then this intense little girl came walking along to capture a photograph of memories. Photo by Kathryn MacDonald©

Bicycles everywhere! I loved the narrow, tight line and the shadow that lends perspective. It wouldn't work for me without the waiting woman and girl.

We met the most wonderful people at Baracoa. This path, a bit out of the city, led to the home of new friends which are as beautiful as the flowers along the walkway. (Photo by Kathryn MacDonald© at www.travelnotebook.ca)
