This gallery highlights pictures published last week by AP photographers in Latin America and the Caribbean.

In the days since the presidents of the U.S. and Cuba announced their plans to restore diplomatic relations, raising hopes of change, the sights and sounds in Havana have stayed the same. Children played in the street, classic American cars coasted the Malecon and vendors hawked their wares.

Surprisingly, the larger-than-life retired Cuban leader Fidel Castro hasn't made a public comment on the biggest news in years, news which also brought to light a quiet, ongoing reconciliation between the Catholic Church and the Cuban government.

Argentina's legal system awarded Sandra, an orangutan who's lived in a cage for 20 years, some legal rights that are enjoyed by humans, paving the way for Sandra to be freed from the zoo and released at a sanctuary.

Mexicans protested on the three-month anniversary since 43 college students allegedly were taken by police and handed over to drug traffickers to be killed and their remains burned. In the same week, and in the same Guerrero state, Rev. Gregorio Lopez Gorostieta was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head on Christmas Day, the third priest to be killed in the area this year.

People vented their anger at "The Break Club" in Argentina; a man in Chile sold donkey milk directly from his donkey's utters to clients for $2 dollars a glass, and Brazil had its first day of summer with temperatures climbing above 40 degrees C (104 F).
