On the outskirts of Havana, the day of President Obama's visit was marked by heightened security and a notable shutdown of public spaces. This event, while significant for its historical and diplomatic implications, also brought into focus the human rights issues concerning freedom of movement and assembly for locals. The restrictive measures had a profound impact on the daily lives and routines of the residents.I danced in a residential area with houses that were barely standing up, which had whole families living in it.
