University of Santiago: student dormitory, 1970
"We stayed in this building during our visit to Santiago de Cuba. The dorm was light and airy inside, and was named after
a late hero of the revolution, Camilo Cienfuegos. The buildings in this university were being designed and built by faculty
and students who combined work with study. Some friends from Brigade 6 and I were invited by a student to visit his computer
center. After we admired the computers built by students, he opened one up to reveal a rubber beach ball inside, painted with
little ducks, that played a tune when it was spun around. The student told us that was for when you got bored. He also took
us to meet his mother and little brother in their small apartment in the city."
