I met this woman when I wandered into an apartment building just off the local market in Belen, Havana. Her rooster was wandering around outside of her apartment... when she picked him up, I started snapping some shots. I loved the gritty texture and character of nearly every building I saw around Havana. I was with a Cuban photographer who showed me that you can just wander into these places and start talking with the locals. I was amazed how friendly the people were. I can't imagine Americans being comfortable with strangers walking into their buildings off the street.
