Scenes from Matanzas, Cuba - Matanzas is a large provincial capital, just a couple of hours from Havana. It's a laid back city, where friends take their time , and it's easy to find a pickup game of soccer or get a shoeshine. Matanzas is a port town, and down by the riverside , you can often find people fishing. Downtown, men gather at the chess club, while just a couple of blocks away, the Baptist church is active and growing. Like everywhere in Cuba, kids are happy to mug for the camera and propaganda is one industry that is always at work.
