A message from your host, Derrick Olsen:
Hello Global Friends,
Is there another country that captures the imagination like Cuba? With its potent mix of revolutionary politics, warm and welcoming people, fabulous music, lush tropical landscapes, and vibrant art, it is a place like no other. Join us as we explore this time-capsule nation before it changes forever.
In this carefully planned People to People program, you will meet with Cubans from all walks of life—political figures, academics, artists, and farmers. Hear about their daily lives, their hopes for the future, and their thoughts about relations between our two countries. Explore Cuba’s rich history and culture as we visit Havana, the “Paris of the Caribbean,” and two colonial cities, Cienfuegos and Trinidad, both UNESCO world heritage sites. From the waves crashing against the Malecon, to the Afro-Caribbean beat, to the iconic ‘50s cars, Cuba is a feast for the senses, as well as a challenge to the intellect.
We’ll be among the first Americans to visit after more than a generation of hostilities. I can hardly wait to share this historic moment with you.
