Candid shot of a beach seller with a group of tourists dancing in the background. The tourists were engaged in one of the activities led by a resort's animation team. Sellers like this one were roaming the beaches of Varadero selling hay hats, bamboo beer mugs, or both. Cubans whom you can't but love have little yet are so warm and welcoming. They seem to have retained their smile despite their conditions.
Location: Varadero, Cuba
