Once upon a time, looking at someone else’s holiday photos was seen as a chore. This is because you had to sit down and physically look at each photo, usually while arranging your face in a way that made it look like you were interested.

This suitable facial expression got more difficult the more photos there were to look at, and you would hope that the person showing you the photos would leave the room, so you could skip to the end and pretend you’d admired them all. Things have changed, and nowadays you probably post all your holiday photos on social media in a deliberate attempt to make your friends and family jealous about the unbeatably awesome time you’ve had.

Do you know anyone who has been to Cuba?

If so, looking at those photos of Cuba will have no doubt made you feel jealous, but at least you can look at the computer screen in the privacy of your own home, without needing to fake a facial expression. Not that we’re deliberately trying to make you jealous, but here are some more photos that will make you want to book your flight to Cuba right now.

Enjoy!

The Malecón in Havana is so fascinating that you might be tempted to walk its entire length. Just don’t forget that it’s actually 8 km (5 miles) long.

9. A Smile and a Smoke

We all know that smoking is unhealthy, so it would be helpful if these Cuban ladies didn’t make it look fun.
