I recently returned from ten days in Cuba. It was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed every moment and learned a lot. I went with Pastors for Peace, a well loved and respected organization that has been leading delegations and caravans to Cuba for decades. We were received with affection and graciousness wherever we went. In fact, I hope to return more than once! But more about that later. I will be blogging more in the next few weeks. For now, here are a few photos.
We enjoyed the street entertainment in Old Havana.
We learned about and visited some amazing social programs.
We were entertained by talented and enthusiastic young people.
We saw alleys that had been turned into art galleries.
We saw permaculture in action.
We visited churches and learned about the Santeria religion.
We learned about the impact of the US blockade. Translation: Blockade. The longest genocide in history.
