These boots were made for walking!

By TonyDy
This lady spends every day sitting on this step in Havana waiting to be photographed, after which she extends her hand and says "One dollar!" which is what they call the tourist peso in Cuba.
I have seen her picture on this site, in travel magazines and brochures and in a TV programme - she must be one of the most photographed women on the planet after royalty and one of the richest!

Judging by her well rung fingers etc; she certainly isn't impoverishedWink
