Hello, everyone! I am Inessa, 27. My husband and me are staying in Cuba for about a year. We came here to look for changes and good investments. We have a habit of helping our friends and other people whom we know to assimilate here. I will tell you about one day of our life when a shooting group of a Russian TV channel came to Cuba to make reportage about changes in local life.
I woke up at 10 a.m. Our house is facing repairs now and we live at an old friend’s place now.
First and foremost I will have tasty coffee boiled in special cans.
I am checking mail and give useful pieces of advice for those of my friends who need them.
I will tell you a few words about the Cubans.
The Cubans are very sociable, they spend a lot of time in the streets surrounded by their friends. They prefer communication to staying at home and watching TV.
Such small markets can be easily found in big cities where there is not enough space. It is very convenient as you can buy what you need without leaving your house.

The mini-buses will take you wherever you want.
Another variant of a light taxi.
The China town is surrounded with massive gates. The area used to be the hugest part throughout entire Latin America. The Chinese came here to carry out constructions but disappeared on the eve of the revolution.
Pupils of a dance school.
I will have chicken, rice and vegetable salad for breakfast.
The interview will be taken at the local private restaurant.
We are discussing our plans for today with Ksenia, producer.
It is almost 1 p.m.
The employees already know about our visit.
The owner of the restaurant is a young sociable man with big ambitions and plans for the future.
We have met another company of friends in the street on the way back from the restaurant.
The vehicles are adored mainly by the German pensioners.
My husband Andrey estimates the current economic situation.
We have approached our underbuilt house and continued shooting.
The house used to be the property of the famous Cuban writer Daniel Chivarriga who inhabited it with his wife, local librarian. That is why a long lines of books can be found here.
It is 3:30 p.m.
Having shown the house to our friends we moved further.
The Cubans adore dogs and at least one dog lives almost in every house.
We can now spend some time in the street.
We are visiting my Spanish teacher who agreed to participate in the interview.
Professor tells us about his pupils and system of Cuban education in general.
We made professor’s grandson study math in front of the cam.
It is time to have a snack.
Having natural orange juice and sandwich with ham and scrambled eggs is a good way not to feel hungry.
The most famous Cuban product.
The night has come.
It is good that a lot of restaurants are available in Cuba.
Now we’ll take our friends to the ocean.
It is time to have a rest.
