APTOPIX Cuba Twinville
In this Sept. 23, 2013 photo, six-year-old twin sisters Asley and Aslen Velazquez prepare for school in Havana, Cuba. The sisters are just one set of twins out of 12 sets living along two consecutive blocks in western Havana, ranging in age from newborns to senior citizens. Their mother Tamara Velazquez said she never expected to have twins from her first pregnancy and did not take fertility treatments. "It's a lot of work. It requires a lot of patience," Velazquez said. "They are very active and dominant, although each has a different character." (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
