Each week we pick a favorite reader photo and story.

The photographer: Joe Phelan of Lincoln

Behind the lens: This is a photo I took in Havana when we were there with Sacramento's Friendship Force. Cuba is such an interesting place to visit, especially when you stay with families as one does when traveling with a Friendship Force group. For all the decay and poverty, Cuba has a special charm about it, and some of that is captured with this lady smoking her cigar.
