Heidi Hollinger Loves Havana!

Heidi Hollinger is having a busy day. She has just spent the morning and afternoon photographing Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s whirlwind tour of Havana and she is changing into a cocktail dress to attend the Canadian Ambassador’s reception at the Cervecería Antiguo Almacén de la Madera y el Tabaco on Old Havana’s waterfront. Unbeknownst to her, the evening will also involve an impromptu invitation to the opening of a new Indian restaurant nearby only to be followed by a mojito mixing lesson and some salsa dancing at the Bodeguita Del Medio. This woman never stops; welcome to the go-go world of Heidi Hollinger!

This is an award that belongs to Cuba, because my work originated and was created in Cuba, with my people from Cojimar, a village of which I am a resident. This adopted country, where I have my books and my house, is present throughout all the translations.
