Photographer's Note

I was going the main pedestrian street in Santiago, Enramadas, when I saw this Afro-Cuban woman sitting on the steps with cute baby girl crying. When I stopped to make a picture, the girl found the lady with camera interesting. As you can see, one can have a glimpse what is inside the room. I do not know if it was a workshop of some kind or just the flat. Very characteristic feature of Santiago are these steps that can be used also as a stone bench. The woman looked at me at the first moment, but soon lost interest. The baby girl Followed me with her sight.

Calle Enramadas is one of the oldest in Santiago, and as someone said , Enramadas is the "smile of Santiago de Cuba". This main commercial artery was the first to be paved in 1899, but since 1908 is called José Antonio Saco, after the antislavery thinker .The route took until the eighteenth century several names depending on the section.
