Cuba/internet-2016Havana, Cuba, 21 mars 2016 : Havana, Cuba, 21 March 2016. A young woman takes advantage of her internet connection under the gaze of the taxi driver while they are near the Havana Libre hotel. Anyone who went to Cuba quickly realized the difficulty of connecting to the Internet. In large hotels it is possible for a few dollars to connect with a more or less acceptable speed but for the Cuban few dollars represents a significant sum that not everyone can afford. For some time, young hackers, hacking the connections near the big hotels of the capital Havana and some big cities of regions. So for one dollar it is possible to connect for one hour to Pinar Del Rio and for three dollars, one hour to Havana. It is young hackers doing gold business because the Cuban craze for the web is viral but they sometimes get arrested for illegal trade. Here is a series of photographs taken during the visit of President Barack Obama to Cuba last March. Photo Normand Blouin

Copts, who were in Egypt before Muslims, have been persecuted for centuries. The census conducted under the British Rule from 1882 until 1937 showed a steady decline of the Copts. Under Nassr, Copts were harshly hit by nationalization as they held more than 50% of the country’s health. Photo ©Normand Blouin
