Bus-ride Conversations

Over the course of our eight days in Cuba, the moments that stood out the most weren’t necessarily what you might expect.  While it was exciting to snap photos to capture the iconic profile of Che Guevara in the Revolution Square and have a mojito on the outdoor terrace of the Hotel Nacional overlooking the waves crashing into the Malecon, in fact my most memorable moments occurred in the confines of our motor coach.

My Adventure to Cuba: Part 1

My toes touched the tarmac and there it was, right in front of me – history.

What struck me about this embrace was that it felt as though it was being shared amongst brothers, the closest of brothers, who for whatever reason, had been separated for years, decades even, without a phone call or email. For me, during that one single moment in time, I finally understood his genuine love for Cuba and its people.
