That day was absolutely poring down and me and Lina stayed at home. Towards the end of a day, no matter rain we have decided to go out, walking on the streets was just not possible and we have been hiding under the buildings shelter, so we run under it to think what we can do next…. a, never mind, so we pulled our cameras out and start shooting. Haven’t spotted the camera on that building next thing we know there was a security guide with us, luckily he was from Cuba and while chatting him away we did some shots, he liked these shots too and gave us chewing gum, Chewing gum? thanks for that, at list we haven’t been arrested…
