Photographer's Note

Local sugar cane farmer make sugar cane juice for passing tourists on their way to a local waterfall. It takes three men a few minutes to get enough juice to fill three glasses. The process is strenuous but the pay off is nice. A hefty price of 1 CUC is charged per glass. In the short time that I was there, over a dozen glasses were sold. To put things in perspective, the normal Cuban makes roughly 11 CUCs a month in income.

Despite the outward appearance of a Communist country, entrepreneurial individuals are finding ways to make additional income on the side.
