Backpack Journalism and the Renovation of Old Havana

OLD HAVANA, Cuba, 2 November 2011 — A student at a workshop run by the Office of the City Historian recently helps restore a building weakened by the rotting and subsequent expansion of steel reinforcement rods embedded deep in its concrete frame. I was able to document part of the restoration in conjunction with freelance work here as a backpack journalist.
