“I understand both the science and to some extent the effects for global warming better for having taken this trip. I loved the experience of living on an ice breaker and learning about arctic marine mammals.”
Journey to Cuba - sold out
Through a series of meetings and guest speakers we learn about art, dance, medicine, history, education, religion and the economy. This is an extensive and intense learning experience built on the foundation of meeting Cubans and creating a meaningful exchange of ideas and information. Explore the old city as we learn about Havana's history and architecture. Meet with farmers and visit an artist community project in the Vinales Valley. See how small private enterprises are growing throughout the island. Converse with students during a visit to the premier art school in the country. Meet with dancers and learn about flamenco. Take a tour of the excellent Fine Arts Museum with a top curator who explains how politics and social concerns are communicated through art. Discuss U.S. foreign policy with Cuba during a visit to the U.S. Interests Section. Stay seven nights at the 5-star Parque Central Hotel in Havana. Join us for a private and exclusive program with the Commonwealth Club.
