Relics of Detroit’s past speed throughout the streets and the countryside of the small town of Viñales, Cuba — filling the humid air with a symphony of honking — each one held together with household items and anything else the innovative people of this vibrant island can find. In the morning, the mist blows through the lush vegetation that grows along the sunrise-colored rocky facades of the Sierra de los Organos mountains. In the evenings, tourists emerge from the trails and handful of climbing routes in the valley to cool off with a refreshing mojito and perfectly rolled cigar from one of the area’s many tobacco farms. Time eternally stands still here, the sun rising and falling each day serves as the only clock for everyone lucky enough to spend time in this beautiful mountain town.
