I took this one late in the day on New Year's Eve when the streets were mostly empty in anticipation of the celebration. People seemed to be at home cooking pork and making cakes, traditional New Year's food. Shortly before this photo we passed a group of men carrying a board displaying a splayed out pig (for roasting) and on the way back through the countryside we passed several pigs roasting on spits. Cuba loves pork.

The blue object in the foreground is a public garbage can. Some of them say "cesto" on the front although this one did not.

Song: I've moved onto Lonely, Lonely from Feist's older album.
