This trip is and has been the most emotional trip I have ever taken… actually the 2nd most emotional!(Banda Aceh can't be beaten if we are talking about harshness and adventure) This Cuba trip has been a life changer as well.
Would I do it again?
…I’m not sure….
there were times I wanted to give up, times I wanted to throw in the towel and call it quits. But I didn’t’ (plus I couldn't) and now I feel the rewards.
Cheers to adventure, 2 cheers for being uncomfortable and risking much, 18 cheers for priceless memories, pockets full of info & new knowledge & most of all, cheers to Cuba & A Coming Change...
…[The adventure] To Be Continued
Luis walking on the street with me
another roof shot of me.
- The Cubans: Luis & Leslie (Pronounced Lay-Lee)(see B&W picture of Leslie below) Thought I should be a famous singer. My voice is better then my pictures? (Ahh Ohh! I may be in trouble if that’s the case)
- Ralph is the heartthrob now. Everyone wanted to see pictures of him again & again.
- I’ve inspired the crew of students to get in shape. We walked up 18 flights of stars everyday at least 3 times a day. Elevator was broken . now they are going to do it even when it works. Also go to the gym.
- I sleep & eat more then these people.
- Buses seat 40 but can holed up to 85 people, you often breath 3 other peoples breathe before getting a fresh one. Really easy to get sick.
- Fires are everywhere…not sure why…burning garbage, brush, ect.
- The sun is hotter here. Burning made easy.
- Downtown Habana has no beach…just a Grande Wall
- Pens suck here (mine jiggles a lot) That’s why I use tape.
- My English is horrible now. I now talk w/ an accent.
OH! & Cheers to getting back home safely!
