Nothing much going on lately to blog about. I got a new camera but the weather has been lousy for going out and using it. I am also getting a new DV camera in the next few days, but other than that, things have been slow. So, I decided to blog about something Hui-chen and I did a few months ago.
I enjoy good cigars, as well as pipe tobacco. When we visited my brother and my Mother in Florida, we went thorough Ybor City in the Tampa area.
So, where did we go? To Havana Dreams Cigar Factory, of course! Many Cubans work in the US cigar trade, and especially in Ybor City. Here we see a roller making cigars the old fashioned way – by hand. Notice the form tool he is using for shaping the roll.
I bought some really excellent hand rolled “torpedoes” and they were great! Here you see Hui-chen and I posing in front of the store. If you look closely you can see Ernie taking our photo (reflection in the glass door).
You can see the full sized versions of these photos, beginning here.
