Stuck Behind Traffic

Your Shot photographer Mark Underwood spotted a woman carrying a mirror down the street in Havana, Cuba, and knew he had to scurry away from his friends to capture this shot. Reflected in the woman’s mirror is the back of an older car—a common sight in the Cuban capital, where classic American cars, many dating back to the 1950s, line the streets. As the borders between the United States and Cuba reopen, National Geographic was there to explore the effect the new wave of tourists will have on the island nation.
