Many years ago, Jakob and I were lucky to receive a scholarship that took us all the way to Havana, Cuba. For 4 months we stayed in a house near the Malecón. We drew and wrote, took Salsa lessons, found out where the best Mojitos were made, learned the art of queuing the Cuban way and travelled by the slow train across the country. This gypsum mermaid was the only thing we bought and brought with us from the trip. She still watches over us.
