|Cristino town is named after the sugar factory. Its people are very sociable.|
The current Cuban sugar harvest benefits from favorable results, actually needed for the new domestic economic situation. Productive results are achieved before time and unexpectedly because costs are lower than planned.
Sugar factories go on producing, though plans have bee accomplished, because there are still available sugar cane fields.
The sugar cane, from its very harvesting to its industrial process, tinges Cuban idiosincracy. It is part of our culture.
It gets me happy the chance to live it, lens in between, of course; and even more, to share it.
