advertising is everywhere in the united states. I just read an article about fitting nyc taxi cabs with global positioning systems (gps). the electric sign on top of the cab will be able to display ads relative to which stores it's driving by! billboards, internet, coffee cups. rumour has it, soon nyc turnstiles and the like.

One of the first things I noticed in Cuba was the complete lack of advertising. cruising through habana, driving the country, walking down the malecon- no billboards, taxis with adds, posters. nada y nunca. truly no advertising for products. the central government has put up many posters and billboards reminding the world of the historic revolution- Castro, Che, Camilo Cienfuegos... There are also scattered billboards against "El Plan Bush."

people, natural beauty, streets, peeling paint on old homes, fruits, sun and moon, beisbol, music, paint, traditions, history, revolution, smiles,love and life.

cuba is an isle blessing in the middle of the caribbean, spinning in unison, a neighbor, a friend, on this here Earth. we're all in for the ride. together.

here are some snaps.

love and health to all...
