When taking street photos in Mexico and Cuba, I realized that everyone seems to be talking with their hands. The expressive Latinos would have a very difficult time communicating with their hands tied behind their backs, it seems.
If you really want to see a Mexican or Cuban talk with their hands, ask them directions. The ever-helpful locals will show you where to go with arms flying in a hundred different directions. Pay close attention or you will be totally confused. You can also ask them about fútbol or Trump to get a similar reaction.
When shooting street photos, I try to look for energy and action, and so capturing these moments of body language became a bit of an obsession. Luckily, subjects were not in short supply.
