Habaneros : Cuba

1992 - 1995



The resolution of the Cold War has engendered various in the lives of people around the world.As one of the 1970 "Ampo"(U.S.- Japan Security Treaty)generation.
I was influenced by Socialism in my teens, and I traveled to Cuba four times between 1992 and 1995 to find out exactly what Socialism was.
Quite unlike the stern image of Russian Socialism, I came to love the boundlessly cheerful and kind people of Cuba.
There are simple and clear-cut, yet difficult to solve, problems in Cuba. I sincerely hope this generous and proud people are able to solve their problems and come to a "soft landing"free of strife.
