Cuba trip exceeds all expectations

Street_25 percent
I recently returned from a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Cuba. What was a popular tourist destination in years past  has worn with age and neglect, but despite the countless number of buildings in disrepair, the island still boasts a striking beauty and proud culture.

Our journey, a pilgrimage to celebrate the 10th anniversary of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, located in Old Havana, offered our group of 60 travelers a taste of the island that has been a mystery to Americans for decades.

The food was delicious, and the people were friendly, gracious, and welcoming. Despite having very little, they seem content, and were generally willing to pose for a picture or two for a curious American photographer.
