Hung up to dry in Old Havana

At the corner of Amargura and San Ignacio in Old Havana, Cuba, is a health food store called Mercado Bethania. We didn’t go there. We stood on the corner to take a photo of the building across the street, because someone had hung their laundry on a second-story balcony to dry. The colors of the laundry items echo the colors of the window frames – blues and white – with just enough red accents for interest. The next time you are in Old Havana, take your eyes off the vintage cars and look up – to find ordinary everyday life.
