Our Cuba Visit

Our View From Iowa

by Jim and Melanie

ComplicatedBetween 21-26 October 2015, we were in Cuba under the auspices of People-to-People. Local jazz stations KCCK and WVIK organized the trip with the assistance of a travel agency.

Much happened during those few days. Our impressions and photographs of the beautiful people and things we experienced are described in the six posts linked below.

One thing is certain, Cuba is complicated as reflected by this typical utility pole in a Havana neighborhood. We have tried to make the experience more meaningful by breaking up the posts into themes instead of a day-by-day sequence of events. We hope this is helpful.

  1. I can’t wait to read about it, once you’ve had time to process your impressions. I have a friend who takes his music students there every year for a cultural exchange. It sounds like a beguiling place.

    • We are working on picture selections and how to organize our posts. Things are starting to settle out.

      We also have a friend who does that. He teaches at U IA in the jazz dept. He specializes in Latin Jazz and Cuban music. He’s been several times and brings back wonderful additions to his music.

I'd like to hear from you.
