11 Sarcastic Theses About Cuba

titel

Cycling long distances can be boring. For hours you are somehow stuck on your bike, left alone with your thoughts. During my bike trip across Cuba I started texting my sarcasm into aphorisms. And some of these ended up in theses, that I got photos for, illustrating them.

Thank you to my co-traveler Marco, who helped wasting the time for this list with me ;)

And here they are:

1. You start seeing Cuba the day you stop taking photos of old cars

4. In Cuba the internet is still a place with opening hours
