Photographs are important to people who have immigrated from their birth country. They contain memories of the past and may be the only remaining links to their country of origin. For many Cubans who were unable to take much of their personal possessions when they left the island, photographs of their previous lives number in the precious few. 

As an exile, I have been fortunate to have been able to collect from family and friends a small but significant gallery of photos of my early life in Cuba and of family members who came before me, and which I want to share with you here.

At the time that I left Cuba, immigration to the United States could only be made through a third country, so my journey to the U.S. first took me to Spain, a country which is as much a part of me as is Cuba and the U.S.  Spain gently eased my transition, and was the perfect place for my first solo foray into the world as a 18-year old adult.  

After several years in Spain, my papers were approved and I emigrated to the United States. I worked, studied, and made many friends during those first years, some of whom I am still in contact with.

Visiting Cuba after an absence of over 21 years was a bittersweet experience, that certainly influenced my life and prompted the writing of my first novel, Havana Split.

I visited Cuba again in April 2003 as a result of an invitation by a group of Havana Artists and Writers.  Many changes have occurred since my first return and I'm sharing them here with you.

In April, 2004 I went back to visit my family in the province of Camagüey, Cuba.  The trip prompted me to write a "Blog" (web-log) about the journey and my impressions.  I took a lot of photos with my new digital camera -- so many that I've only been able to post a portion of them, divided into three parts: Buildings & Churches, the Women I know and met, and People & Places.
