We took a taxi into the city of Santiago de Cuba on Saturday just a few days before New Year's Eve. The city was busy with people lined up outside stores to procure goods for the celebration. Handwritten proclamations praising Fidel, heroes of The Revolution and other socialist/communist icons were a common sight chalked or painted on walls, roads, rocks, and other surfaces. I'm not sure about the tractor in the photo on the right, but in the countryside we did see tractors used as a mode of transportation.

I've been posting digital photos of our trip to my flickr stream.
