In the far Western part of Cuba is the town of Vinales in the province of Pinar del Rio. This region is noted for its tobacco growing, and Vinales is a pleasant little town, spruced up for tourists who used to drive straight through. We visited a working tobacco farm, saw a demonstration of rolling a cigar, and had a cup of strong coffee in the house on the property. The top photograph shows the family living there taking a mid-day rest. The middle photo is of a Guajiro, or Cuban peasant farmer, who gives the demonstarations. Bottom, the owner's pride and joy sitting in the driveway of his house. We drove back to the hotel , barely beating a torrential lightning, thunder, and rain storm. We sat and drank mojitos in the hotel bar and waited out the deluge. All photographs taken with the Sony NEX 7 and Tamron 18-200 lens.
