We all traveled to the airport together where we said goodbye to our fantastic group leader Yves, our knowledgeable and very patient guide Raul, and our careful and timely driver, Jesus.
We arrived at the Havana airport in plenty of time for our 50 minute flight to Miami. We easily cleared immigration, paid our $25 CUC tax, and arrived to find a delayed flight. Three hours later, we all headed to Miami and our final destinations—4 to California, one to Florida, one to Amsterdam for another trip (Geri—you’re my hero!) and one (me) to Boston.
This was the inaugural trip for this Shalom Cuba Road Scholar program, so we were all very interested in how it would go, what the participants would think about it, and how the interactions with the locals would go. Overall, I would say it was an overwhelming success! I can’t wait to see the pictures and hear the stories of the other hundreds of people who will visit Cuba with us this year…
