Vincent and I first spotted Wilky on our first evening in Havana. Starving, we decided to get something to eat, knowing we'd want to photograph this charming man. He approached us right away and talked about him and his wife - stating that he was famous. Sure enough, moments later he produced a National Geographic magazine with him on the cover. Promising to return, we found food, mojitos and a cigar to share. We didn't run into Wilky again until our last day, but he remembered us instantly and was happy and proud to have his photo taken.
