December 17 the Cubans celebrate San Lazaro. Mostly it´s a good excuse to party heavily.
This is the small village Condado in southern Cuba about an hour drive from Trinidad. People come riding in from all over the region. The local salsa-band takes care of the music.. Plenty of cheap rum and a willingness to dance and have fun makes it a party to remember.
