Fábio Roque – The Cubans

Cuba holds a special place in our hearts. Portuguese photographer Fábio Roque captured daily life on the (still) tranquil pearl in the Caribbean. For me personally it's a sweet trip down memory lane.

Got ran over by a horse, can describe the interiors of two police stations, immigration services and the Dutch embassy. Absolutely awesome...
