From the South Bronx to Havana, Cuba

Cekis had mentioned to me that he was painting up in the Bronx, and I expected to find him at work on a wall. But when we got up there today, he and Chilean graffiti muralist Dasic Fernandez were painting a bus.  Dasic explained that the bus is one of about 35 that will be will be transporting food and medical supplies to Cuba. They will travel next to Canada and eventually be transferred to a boat in Mexico that will bring them to Havana.
