Cock-a-doodle-doo! Diego blinks his eyes as the rooster crows again from the rooftop. Next to him, his little sister and older brother sit up in their small beds. The smell of strong, roasted coffee and tostados (Cuban grilled bread) wafts in from the kitchen. Mamá serves breakfast then goes to the corner of the small living room where her sewing machine sits. While the kids go to school, she sews and mends clothes for people. Meanwhile, Papá is getting ready to ride his bike to the bicycle repair shop where he works.

Havana Home

Diego lives in Cuba’s capital city, Havana. Spanish settlers founded the city in 1515—more than 500 years ago. At first it was just a small village where ships came to load and unload goods. Today, more than 2 million people crowd the city. Many, like Diego’s family, share rooms in large houses that used to be homes for one family. Some people have cars, but most get around on buses, bikes, motorcycles, and taxis. Many of these taxis are cool old American cars from the 1950s.


Whether they live in a city or in the country, all Cuban kids must attend school at least through ninth grade. Then they decide whether they will study to go on to college or learn job skills. For their school uniforms, all ages wear a white shirt. Diego wears red shorts, the color for the primary-school kids. His sister, in kindergarten, wears a blue skirt. His brother, in seventh grade (secondary school) wears yellow pants. Diego likes reading and math, and he especially likes typing on the computer. He also enjoys learning different crafts and how to garden. After morning classes, the kids eat a hot lunch.
