You may recall that we mentioned a trip to Cuba in our last post. Well let us tell you all about it. We are taking a trip to what we call, “Hemingway’s Cuba.” Hemingway lived there for 21 years and wrote seven of his novels during that time, including The Old Man and the Sea and Islands in the Stream. The trip will take place primarily in the beautiful city of Havana and the surrounding area, for seven days and six nights. (Don’t worry; it will be nothing like the film Six Days and Seven Nights.)
Not only will we be exposed to the incredible Cuban culture and history will we be interacting with local artists, musicians and farmers during our stay. Our main focus will be learning about the past and present restoration projects in Havana and touring various architectural marvels. Outside of Havana we will be making a stop at Cienfuegos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cienfuegos is considered the Capital of Urban Agriculture in Cuba.
It is our hope that we will be able to take an educational trip like this one every year or so. So if you missed us this time around, be sure to stay updated so you can go with us on our next great adventure!
