Is anyone else on the 5/19 trip to Cuba going to visit the El Libro English Bookstore? If so, would you be willing to take three books that I can donate to the bookstore with them? Please let me know. One of your fellow travelers is taking four of my books to donate to the bookstore. Thanks for your consideration in advance.


Ann Mueller Apr 18, 2015 at 03:51 PM

My husband & I toured Cuba in 2012 & loved it. I have 6 books I want to donate to the Cuba Libro English bookstore in Havana; total weight is 8 lbs. Anyone planning to visit the bookstore on the next trip? If so, I can mail the books to them. I can mail them to 1, 2 or 3 different travelers in order to lighten the load. They are about Poe, Van Gogh, Lincoln,, Jack London & Las Vegas, as there's always been a Havana-Las Vegas connection. Muchas gracias!
John Apr 18, 2015 at 11:42 PM

Ann, I am taking 9 pounds with me. I would be happy to take a few more. I am on the May 19th tour. My address is john Schofield, 4534 W. Seminary Avenue, Richmond, Va. 23227.

I've always just wrapped the bottle in a beach towel or something and put it in my checked baggage. I doubt you would be allowed to take it in your carry-on. About a year and a half ago, Havana Club 7 year old was 7.60CUC. If you are going to mix the rum, buy less-aged (and cheaper) rums. For the aged stuff, I prefer Mulatta, Varadero or Santiago brands over Havana Club. The 7-year old (Siete Años) will be about the same price. In a specialty rum store you will be able to find older, and more expensive, rums. One extra hint - in Varadero the rum was actually cheaper at the Casa de Tabac than the Casa de Ron, for the same brands.


Lynne Geary Apr 18, 2015 at 08:48 AM

How do we package and transport rum back? What is good price?


Chris Coleman Apr 17, 2015 at 01:59 PM

We are arriving in MIA a day early for the May 18 tour. I can't seem to find the link to the Miami tour suggested. Can anyone provide this please? We would probably take the tour on the 19th and just play on the beach and walk around South Beach on the 18th with a stop for dinner. Anyone else game for either day?
John Apr 17, 2015 at 02:14 PM

Chris, the Miami tour is www.allaboutmiamitours.com. The phone number is 305-576-2888. He already has a few Roads Scholars signed up for his May 19th tour. He will pick at the hotel and have up back in time for the evening festivities.
Chris Coleman Apr 17, 2015 at 06:57 PM

Thanks john. I put a call into him.


vicki morrison Apr 16, 2015 at 03:06 PM

Anyone on the April 26 tour going to do the tour of Miami ?


John Apr 16, 2015 at 01:41 PM

Chris, I am mailing Coner the Rolling Stone Rock n Roll encyl., the Fitzgerald short stories, letter from the Birmingham Jail, Future Shock, Howl, Huck Finn, To Kill a Mockingbird, and several issues of the New Yorker.

I look forward to meeting you on the 19th
Chris Coleman Apr 16, 2015 at 03:43 PM

Thanks John. I have Junot Diaz and Obama and will see what else I can find. I'll also send along some more recent prize winners that aren't mysteries.
John Apr 17, 2015 at 01:52 PM

Chris, I just returned from the Post Office to mail my books to Conner. I hope you have better luck. Six pounds of books would require $52,00 in postage. I will just pack them and pay the excess baggage fee. Much cheaper.
Chris Coleman Apr 17, 2015 at 01:56 PM

Whoa! We'll figure out something else as well. We watched the documentary "Fidel" last night as well as "Our Man In Havana." Netflix and Amazon streaming. Really enjoyed both.
John Apr 17, 2015 at 02:17 PM

Conan O'Brian was in Havana in early March. Watch the broadcast as we will see many of the same places.
Christine Jensen Apr 17, 2015 at 04:05 PM

I have the complete work of Poe and will bring some of the recommended magazines. I will also look for some Steinbeck. I'm on the May 5th-12th trip.
John Apr 17, 2015 at 06:13 PM

Christine, The Moon Is Down might be an inspiring story to take.
Christine Jensen Apr 17, 2015 at 08:08 PM

I'll look for that, I was also thinking Travels with Charley
