The last days of tobacco in Granada
Photo and caption by Carlos Cazurro
As benefits are decreasing, tobacco is back to be mainly a family thing. Manuel and his family wake up early to gather and hang tobacco leaves in the drying barn where they will stay for about a couple of months. This is supossed to be the last year of tobacco in the traditional growing towns around Granada. EU is not going to support this cultivation anymore and the price rates from other countries are quite lower, contracts and benefits are gone. I was allowed to climb up the drying barn to take that picture of Manuel and his family working.
