Shot Of The Day

Mariposa

Lasting Scents

The Cuban national flower, Mariposa, and the favored drink, coffee, fill the air with lasting scents.

Food is not abundant for the Cuban nationals. Their ration cards have a paucity of items and even some of those are unavailable at times. Watching these people savor every morsel of food was an education.

Even the flower is treated as a precious item.
