bluetooth

Sometimes a photo just isn't complete without the backstory, so here's the backstory for this photo ... One of my favorite things to do in Cuba is to walk the streets of Centro Habana talking with anyone patient/kind/foolish enough to suffer through my weak and often offensive attempts at Cuban Spanish. I also always listen to music when I'm not embarrassing myself with my Spanglish. At the time of this photo, it just so happens I'd recently bought a pair of Beats Studio Wireless headphones. So, I'm walking the streets of Centro Habana with my new headphones on when I come across a group of kids. They quickly look at me like I'm a complete idiot (fair enough), and not the normal idiot look I get down there (which I know well) ... this was more of a "WTF is that gringo doing wearing unplugged headphones" look. While these Cuban kids clearly knew what headphones were, they had no concept/grasp of Bluetooth technology. Because of that, they quickly concluded I was another idiot gringo tourist, and one who apparently liked to walk around wearing unplugged headphones. I could tell they were giving me the "WTF look," so I called this kid over and put my headphones over his ears. I let him stand there in silence for a minute, and it was clear he was thinking "Yep, just what I thought, this guy's an idiot" ... It was at that very moment that I hit play on my iPhone and dropped the beat on the kid ... He had no idea what had just happened, but he absolutely loved it ... So, in case anyone was ever wondering, this is the look you get when you introduce a young Cuban kid to the wonders of Bluetooth technology for the very first time. I will never forget the look on his face because it puts a smile on my face every. single. time.
