Just a short walk away, on the same side of the same street, from where the newest Havana hotel is being erected, a new mother struggles to provide food and shelter for her baby. She and her husband have claimed a space in one of the old gutted out buildings. In fact several families have partitioned off living spaces in this building. Mostly one or two damp, dark “rooms” with high ceilings. At least she’s on the ground floor.
New construction. Not a renovation.
Inside the mother’s home.
A place to sit.
