Although it feels like it was January last month, we’re now six months into the year and here in the States in the middle of an excruciatingly hot summer (here’s what we recently learned about that). There’s a lot happening in the world: enough to drive your anxiety levels up and worry for our children’s future.

However this month’s photo of the month isn’t one of those. In fact, it’ll likely bring your blood pressure down a bit; sharing a little bit of optimism coming out of Cuba. Sent to us by Ernesto Millan and David Lopez, it’s from a series they are working on about Cuba’s vaccination efforts called, “On the Frontlines.”

Please check out Ernesto and David‘s work on their Instagram feeds. And, special thanks to Rita McNiff for her support with this month’s photo.

Hola todo el mundo. Sometimes our stories are sourced from multiple people on our team. Or, we like to keep you guessing... You know... anonymous. And, for that, soy el escritora; "El Equipo." We exist to amplify the voices of writers, photographers, and content creators in the space between the United States and Cuba, and we also feature stories from Puerto Rico, Latin America, and the Latinx community in the US. Topics of interest are personality-driven and include pop culture and music, featured current events, climate and the environment, and travel and tastemakers. Oh, and of course we're always 100% independent. No governments, businesses or other influencing factors play a role in our work.
