"Poor, grey Banes" Banes by Nanumi

Banes Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 15 photos

Despicable living conditions of hard working families whose life borders on starvation.
This particular "condominium" has no running water therefore it has to be carried up in buckets on narrow staircase.
This is home to for example a university graduate English professor who earns...$7 per months. His wife, English teacher at school can't find job.

This is the interior of one of the homes in that dreadful building. They can afford nothing. Their daily meals consist of rice with beans.
As most Cubans, the inhabitants of this apartment are cheerful, welcoming and warm people.

Kids are always beautiful anywhere in the world.
