In 2016, etecsa — the only telephone company in Cuba — installed wi-fi routers in 18 public parks across the country. For many Cubans, this meant being able to go online for the first time. This portrait of one of these parks with wi-fi in Havana shows how a new social meeting place is the result. In the meantime, commerce is also flourishing, with vendors selling internet cards, drinks and snacks (Pork crackling with wi-fi!). Here, everyone has an opportunity to contact loved ones, explore social media, upload photos and find internet dates — very normal activities that reveal a rapidly-changing Cuba.
