14ymedio, Havana, 20 January 2015 – Havana is home to more than two million people, but has very few recreation centers for children and they are located on mostly on the outskirts of the city. In districts like Central Havana, parks, vacant lots and even the streets themselves become areas where young children play ball, fly kites and play incredible games with their tops. Children look for places to entertain themselves in the most densely populated municipality in the whole country.
On Carlos III Street, right at the corner with Marques Gonzalez and where more than a decade ago a tenement collapsed, they have placed a trampoline. It is rare to pass by this corner and not see a line of children and tends waiting to try the experience of jumping into the air. Some even try acrobatics, like the young man in the photo.
