Dancing with Mama

This is probably the worst video I ever made. (Not that I've made a whole lot.) It's horribly dark and grainy because it was taken with almost no lighting. It's also my favourite video I ever made. And I thought I'd lost it forever when my Kodak Playsport video camera died, and only tonight discovered it had survived on the SD card that was in the camera.

I made this one night in December 2011 at the Iberostar Ensenachos resort in Cuba. There had been a show earlier which included this character. Later, "she" danced up the stairs, where she encountered who else but Husband, who was more than happy to join her in grooving to some great Cuban music. You can hear the hysterical laughter on the video - people were in stitches. One of my favourite Cuban memories.
