I have been lazy in getting this out, and thought while wasting time in the Houston airport I could actually be productive!! When last in Havana, I made time to walk the back streets as I usually do. This time, my friend Bill Colello and Seattle University soccer coach Pete Fewing had managed to get me a bunch of soccer balls. Flattened, and amongst all my fishing gear, I was able to bring along 10! Finding the right kids is always the hardest job, but in the end it is never that difficult.

 A great group of kids, they were playing marbles on this dirty side street when I came across them. Happy, grateful, and polite to be getting a few soccer balls from the USA.

 These great guys worked in a corner bodega, where I was trying to sneak some shots of customers buying their fruit and veggies. They busted me.....and wanted a photo of themselves!
