Mass in Havana

When traveling I often walk into a local church to attend the service.  I've had some amazing experiences including a couple of full-on gospel congregations in Chicago and New York City.  There was a large catholic church between  the casa particular, where I was staying, and the old town, so it was a natural to drop in on that Sunday morning.  I wish I understood Spanish as Fidel Castro had died just two days before and I think that was what the homily was about.

Sketching in a church is not much different from sketching anywhere - no-one notices, and you have opportunity not just to draw the church but to study people sitting relatively still.
