Cuba in 2013

May 23rd, 2018 · No Comments · Cuba, Education

And, why am I writing about that now?

Today, Rich and I had the pleasure of presenting our trip to Cuba in 2013 to the local Senior Community Center. It was a real pleasure to share our experiences with a group of about 18 folks. None had been to Cuba, except for a woman and her daughter who had an amazing story to tell of how the mother went to Spain to be married days before the Revolution and did not go back. It was moving to meet her, and to share our pictures of her homeland with her and the others in the audience.

We went before President Obama had opened up some of the rules for visiting, and, of course, before, Trump put them back. Many things have apparently changed – just go Goggle restaurants and hotels in Havana and look at the long list.

We went with Road Scholar (previously known as Elder Hostel), and at the time, they had about four or five choices. A quick search showed that cruise ships now dock there, hotels are being built, and many dining places have opened up.   My heart hopes that Cuba does not turn into a Caribbean Disneyland.
