CUBA

I find myself speechless actually when it comes to finding an adequate description of my recent trip to Cuba. As much as I've been asked what makes this trip different from others I've taken of late, I find myself struggling to answer. Bottom line is it was a visceral experience - powerful and poignant. Much akin to seeing Manet's Le Dejeuner sur l'herbe for the first time, it was one Stendhal moment after another! That was what Havana was and is, all of it, start to finish.
 
My deepest gratitude goes out to Soane Travels, the Design Leadership Network and Academic Adventures Abroad for the journey of a lifetime. Many, many thanks as well to Hermes Mallea, author of The Great Houses of Cuba, for sharing your insights on all that is Cuba! I feel so very fortunate to have been able to go, now, to see this extraordinary country on the brink of change.
As many have asked for additional imagery via Facebook and Instagram, I've collected many images to share AND for even more to go Instagram #soanetravels and #dlntravelscuba. 
Viva la Cuba!!!!

  3. I have been browsing online greater than three hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  9. If we are going to talk about murals, it is a harsh reality that there are people who do not appreciate artworks like this. I fell bad, but there is less that I can do; I want them to realize that murals are beautiful and worth appreciating. But I simply don't know where to start. Sometimes, I think of writing as my way write my assignment to influence people to appraiser things that should be appreciated. I don't know if that is going to be effective, but I want to give it a try.
