Photographer's Note

Not specially good photos but I just want to show something that fits in this important moment.

From BBC:
President Barack Obama has arrived in Cuba for a historic visit to the island and talks with its communist leader.
He is the first sitting US president to visit since the 1959 revolution, which heralded decades of hostility.
Speaking at the reopened US embassy in Havana, he called the visit "historic". He also spent time in the old city.
Mr Obama will meet President Raul Castro, but not retired revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, and the pair will discuss trade and political reform.
The US president emerged smiling from Air Force One with First Lady Michelle and their daughters Sasha and Malia.
Holding umbrellas, the party walked in light drizzle along a red carpet to be greeted by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez.
Two hours after landing, Mr Obama greeted staff from the US embassy with the words: "It is wonderful to be here".

Here the view of the American Embassy at the end of Malecon (the building behind the masts and arches, see also WS).

The Embassy of the United States of America in Havana is the United States of America's diplomatic mission in the Republic of Cuba. Direct bilateral diplomatic relations did not exist between the two governments from the 1960s to the 2010s. Relations were restored by Cuban President Raúl Castro and US President Barack Obama on July 20, 2015.

The building housed the United States Interests Section in Havana between 1977 and 2015, which operated under the auspices of the Swiss Embassy (acting as protecting power). On July 1, 2015 it was announced that with the resumption of diplomatic ties, the building resumed its role as the U.S. Embassy in Cuba on July 20, 2015.
