was the 180th year anniversary of Carnaval La Habana, a spectacular festival
that incorporates an extrordinary array of Cuba's diverse cultural traditions.
For an entire week the city's Malecon seafront drive was awash with hot
rhythms, color, and gyrating bodies, along with the rain showers and spray
from the sea. The wind and rain were overwhelming at times, but carnaval
prevailed and became its own force of nature, blending with the elements.
