The Cuba People to People program was excellent in every way. It was most informative and enjoyable, and our tour guide made the entire visit to Cuba a pleasure. In addition, the food was delicious and the entertainment provided by local musicians at each location was wonderful. We learned a lot during this short period, and made me want to enroll again for comparable trips to Cuba and other locations throughout the world.

A great trip that took me out of my comfort zone and showed me a part of the world I really had no experience in.

The tour that Cuqui and Guillermo provided was an informative, lively, entertaining, and fascinating glimpse of Cuba and its people. Each day was full of intriguing and stimulating visits with a variety of people, sites, and organizations, all designed to broaden and complicate whatever assumptions and preconceptions we might have had while, simultaneously revealing the very real problems and issues that the country endures.

I did't know Americans could go to Cuba before I learned about Road Scholar. I was excited just to be going to Cuba. It was one of the best trips I have ever taken. Cuba is a beautiful country. I gained alot from the learning experiences, meeting Cuban people and hearing more about USA and Cuban relations from Cubans. It was a very active trip with little free time but I wouldn't have wanted to miss out on any of the activities we had. Seeing the dance company, the school for art and music and dance, hearing the choir, meeting Cuban people in their homes, swimming in the Bay of Pigs, the beautiful architecture, the old cars, visiting the senior center and that is just some of what we did. Go to Cuba.

This experience in Cuba was magical, thanks to our leader Cuqui, our Cuban guide Guillermo, our bus driver Rey, and my fellow travelers. All of them are the best. Our experience included expert lecturers who gave us a good overview of Cuba's history and current condition. It also provided a personal view of different parts of the country and delightful personal interactions with Cubans. Our visits with Cubans in various locations, such as homes, schools, restaurants, were so enjoyable and impressive. We talked, we laughed, we sang, we danced, we ate. We fell under the spell of the Cuban music, that I have always loved.

Cuba had long been a subject of fascination for me, and I was worried that the trip would not live up to expectations. In fact, the Cuba Today trip exceeded every expectation. Our coordinator Cuqui was caring, knowledgeable and so well-known in Cuba that our trip was that much more delightful. Guillermo our tour guide was charming, thoughtful and open about life in his beautiful country. Our driver was a magician. The lectures, performances, meals and tours were fascinating, enriching and thought-provoking. As exhausted as I was at the end, it left me wanting more!

Cuba Today was a life changing trip for me. My world view was broadened thanks to the knowledge and kindness of our guide Cuqui and Guillermo and incredible speakers along the way.

Considering the current troubled relationship between the US and Cuba, the Cuban People to People tour is highly recommended. Exposure to Cuban people and outstanding lectures by University of Havana professors helped to clarify the Cuban position for me.

I would encourage everyone to take the trip,to Cuba. It was very enlightening , educational as well as fun. The participants were compatible, the guides extremely well informed, congenial and helpful. The opportunity to visit and see first hand various parts of the culture and economy was priceless. I also had the opportunity, while seeking the perfect espresso and café cubano, to practice español and spanglish with many people. Everyone was reactive to conversation both in English and Spanish. You will never regret this trip. The only regret would not taking it!

This program opened up a part of the world to me that I didn't know existed. It provides food for thought about socialism and capitalism; about the history of Cuba and Cuban-American relations; it allows face to face interactions with people in a third world economy sustaining first world culture.

Vivian from Laguna Woods, CA Number of programs attended: 3

This trip exceeded our expectations. Our guides, Frederica and Alicia, were knowledgeable, gracious, cautious regarding our safety, and lots of fun. I ate my way through Cuba, especially enjoying papaya and mojitos! The music experiences, both dance and vocal, were outstanding. My favorite city is CienFuegos. It is great that we can now visit this "Pearl of the South." Vivian Johnson

If you want to learn about the people of Cuba and their take on the political, social, and economic situation in which they currently find themselves, this is a very good program for you. What I came away with was a clearer understanding that the government of Cuba and the people of Cuba are not quite the same thing.

Susan from Minnetonka, MN Number of programs attended: 3

A wonderful adventure! Very well-run and well-organized trip, and far more eye-opening than most expected. Federica is an exceptional tour leader -- funny, warm, caring, and accommodating. Guide Ilen is a walking encyclopedia of history and culture! A lot is changing in Cuba, but the development and infra-structure challenges remain immense. Do read up on the current situation and the hero status of Che Guevara! Go !

For anyone interested in history, current events, politics, music and art, this is an experience of a lifetime. Our neighbors, so close and yet so far, share a great deal with us. Visiting the island whose destiny has been shaped by the decades-long US embargo is a top notch lesson in citizenship. Don't miss the Cuba on the brink of great change. See it now so you can have a better appreciation of the inevitable and dramatic changes in the near future,

This program lives up to the tradition we have known at Road Scholar. That is, good value for your money, good lecturers, educated fellow travelers, and a very busy schedule.

Our first guided tour of any kind was last week's Cuba trip. It was fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed the speakers, the accommodations, and our fellow travelers were a delight!

Jean from Madison, WI Number of programs attended: 1

Cuba Today: People and Society #20437 was my first experience with Road Scholar...but not my last! Lecturers on Cuban affairs were intelligent and informative. Accommodations were more that I expected. And we became a cohesive group under the calm and capable tour leadership of Louis Gabriell Bideau.

Robert from Palm Harbor, FL Number of programs attended: 1

My wife and I agree that our trip to Cuba with Road Scholar was definitely one of the best travel experiences in our lifetimes. We thoroughly enjoyed interacting with our fellow Scholars and came away from the trip with a much deeper and better understanding of Cuban society and culture. The icing on the cake was a visit to Cuba Libro, a bookstore/coffee shop operated by an American journalist who lives in Havana with her Cuban husband. The bookstore focuses on books and magazines in English. It appears the locals are responding in a very positive way and are willing to share their individual stories with visitors to Cuba. We spent almost an hour in conversation with a fine young Cuban engineer, for example. Overall, the Road Scholar program was like a post-graduate course served with great food and entertainment.

Susan from Wellesley, MA Number of programs attended: 1

The Road Scholar trip to Cuba: Culture and People is filled with outstanding lectures, interesting and meaningful experiences and interactions with student and professional dance and musical groups as well as visits to a farmers' market, historical architectural sites. Our organizational and local tour leaders were exceptional.

Barbara from Solana Beach, CA Number of programs attended: 1

Linda from St Augustine, FL Number of programs attended: 4

This program was a life changing experience. The days were packed with exactly what the program promised, a people to people experience. The Cuban people are loving and welcoming of the attention of American people. This opportunity is a two way street for human kindness and understanding. The pace is exhausting, although no one activity is too strenuous. Our RoadScholar leader, Luis Gabriel, is one in a million. The Cuban based tour guide was not at the standard we have learned to expect from RoadScholar. If it were not for Luis, the program could have been a train wreck, but he was able to sustain the usual excellent level of RoadScholar. My conclusion is that interest in Cuba has grown so much that the provider of Cuban guides is having to scrape the barrel to provide people. We had highly professional content providers, each one a star in his or her own field of knowledge. One of the best was an unexpected delight - - - -the fellow who gave us a tour of the Necropolis (national cemetery) ---- now, whoever can make cemeteries funny and entertaining is truly a star! He looked like Barack Obama. The food was incredible; I may have a bias as I was raised in Miami and learned to love Cuban food. Mojitos at every meal (free); what could be better? If you go, you will be lucky to get Luis.

See Cuba before it becomes another tourist island like the rest of them in the Caribbean. The city of Havana is still in it's historic phase but it slowly becoming modernized. The Hotel Nacional was the highlight of my visit. Built in the 1930's, it has had it's share of famous guest s like Errol Flynn, John Wayne, Gary Cooper, Winston Churchill, Robert Redford, and hundreds more. This hotel has beautiful rooms, swimming pools, cabaret, restaurants, internet, bars, and much much more. I would rate it 5 out of 5 in the category of historic hotels in the world.

Our trip, 12/3 - 12/11/13, was absolutely spectacular. Federica and Magaly left no stone unturned in showing us all aspects of Cuban life and its people. I highly encourage this trip to get a really genuine view of Cuba. It was varied and far exceeded my expectations!

I enjoyed the trip and our Cuban tour guide, Hector, was great. Very informed and helpful. The food was way too much and not great, but I was prepared for that. I did have to avoid dinner a couple of times just because I was too full and needed some down-time for myself. One is going from 7a.m-8p.m. every day. Almost no free time due to the fact that there are restrictions put on what Americans can legally do when visiting Cuba. Now, however, I have a background in case travel restrictions for individuals are lifted. Be prepared to see tourists everywhere. The country gets 51% of its income from tourism.

The one-week "Cuba Today" trip is outstanding. My husband and I enjoyed it thoroughly and feel that we have learned a tremendous amount about this near-neighbor country.

Best Road Scholar trip ever. Our Cuban guide, Hector, is great and has an encyclopedic knowledge of Cuba. Our Road Scholar Guide, Wendy, is a gem. Cuba is undergoing some rapid changes which have bumps and dynamics. We were exposed to all aspects of Cuban life and different perspectives. The Havana architecture is exquisite and a major effort is underway to restore old buildings. When done, Havana will be more charming than Paris.

This trip to Cuba totally exceeded my expectations which were positive to start with. Every day was beautifully organized to provide us with a range of experiences. We met Cuban children, students, seniors, dancers, artists, musicians, food sellers, and workers in a variety of situations, with time provided to interact meaningfully with them. Thanks to our enthusiastic program guide, Lana, and Guillermo, our Cuban guide, a history buff with a terrific sense of humor. Don't pass up your chance to see Cuba soon.

Mary from Huntington Beach, CA Number of programs attended: 1
Date attended: 11/05/13 - 11/13/13
Cuba is a fascinating, beautiful, artistic, and complex world. Our program guide Lana called it “an onion” because there are so many layers to reveal. Lana’s passion and understanding of Cuba were so beneficial to our trip and our local guide Guillermo was a treasure. The instructors were outstanding and gave food for thought to each day’s activity. We learned so much and have a completely different perspective on US/Cuba relations. Go!

Jeri from Galveston, TX Number of programs attended: 1

The Road Scholar trip to Cuba will show you "the other side" of life in Cuba that you do not hear about or see from inside the US. Go now before it changes. It was a great opportunity and I am so glad I did it.

Nancy from The Villages, FL Number of programs attended: 1

What an awesome trip. It was a real eye-opener to a culture surrounded by misinformation. I am really glad I finally got a chance to go and see for myself. All the people were delightful and seeing the buildings and cars was amazing.

Margaret from East Aurora, NY Number of programs attended: 2

We returned from Cuba two weeks ago and I still cannot stop thinking about all that I saw and learned. Cuban American tour guide, Maria Valdes was great; very efficient and protective. Local guide Magaly was articulate, informative and straight forward. She made me laugh and cry. All the lectures were excellent. I have never learned so much in such a short time. Why have we, the USA, designated Cuba as a "terrorist" nation? And for God's sake, why do we continue to blockade goods from these poor people? Go and see for yourself.

Sylvia from Houston, TX Number of programs attended: 12

I suggest that anyone wanting an experience to remember go to Cuba which is only 90 miles away from Miami. There are many tours on different subjects which will appeal to everyone wanting to know about one of America's closest neighbors. I recommend a visit to Cuba as one of the best travel experiences ever.

Seriously, drop everything and go to Cuba. It is unique among countries and yet possibly on the cusp of change that would make it less so. The people we met were vibrant, warm and gracious...and talented! The only disappointment, believe it or not, was the coffee in the hotels. Go figure...

Suzanne from Roanoke, VA Number of programs attended: 5

Our trip to Cuba exceeded all my expectations. Curiosity about the social/political situation had led me to make this trip, and that interest was definitely satisfied by visits to different neighborhoods & institutions, by excellent commentary by our guide and speakers, and by our intereactions with Cubans in the home, school, & club visits. But there was so much more! The warmth of the Cubans, the beauty of the countryside, the flowers everywhere, the delicious fruits, and best of all, the omnipresent music made this journey and unforgettable pleasure.

This program was educational, organized and fun. The group bonded very well and all were active, well informed people. The guides were excellent and I can't express how very much I learned about Cuba. Wonderful people. I wish more Americans could visit Cuba and learn what the country is really like.

The trip was extraordinary, introducing me to a sophisticated and complex culture and a delightful, well-educated and independent people. We don't hear much about Cuba now-a-days and what we heard in the past is way outdated. Cuba is well worth a visit. It's not what you think it is, it's more impressive and more fun. RS has a wonderful curriculum and itinerary. I highly recommend this trip for those who are flexible in body, mind and spirit.

A wonderful trip, well planned and well executed with tons of things to see, great personalized concerts and lectures. This trip really opens your eyes and your heart to the Cuban people and their continued struggle to find their true identity. The food was true Cuban food, not some impersonation. The people are warm and friendly and not once did we ever feel threatened in any way, even walking the streets alone at night and not speaking any Spanish.

This trip is not for wimps because conditions in Cuba are third-world in terms of food and sanitation. Anyone with food restrictions should think twice. That said it is a terrific trip with lots of learn and truly eye opening. Great leaders and speakers.

This is an excellent program. I learned a great deal about US-Cuban relations and history and understand more about the point of view of the Cuban expatriates who are now in the US. I found out the effects of the Embargo and how damaging it is to all of us, too.

This trip was very interesting and a real education about the reality of Cuba. We learn history in school but there is nothing like going to a country to see, experience and learn firsthand. Also, our group was very cohesive and we all had a wonderful time...

I couldn’t begin to say what was the best thing about this tour - it was all so wonderful! The lectures were very enlightening and relevant to what we saw each day. The people to people activities brought us in close contact with Cubans from all walks of life and I thought were a very valuable experience. And, of course, it was great to finally see the places you’ve only read about in books or newspapers. I could not believe the amount of delicious food we had each day nor the variety of restaurants we visited. Both our American guide Martin and a Cuban guide Hector were so knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of the group. My luggage did not make it to Cuba and they both put forth extraordinary efforts to see that I got it. It was a fabulous experience and I wish I was going again next week!

Laurie from Edina, MN Number of programs attended: 1
Date attended: 03/12/13 - 03/20/13
I just returned & it was fantastic. I learned so much. Our RS guide, Martin was good, but the key is your Cuba guide. Ours was Hector and he was just fabulous as was our driver, Johnie. My only criticism is I am exhausted. We started at 7am with b'fast every day & often didn't get back to our hotel room until 10pm at night. But there is little I would shorten or leave out. We learned so much-even while driving thru Cuba. Nacional Hotel was perfectly fine. The bathroom was great & the bed fairly comfortable. Hotel Jagua in Cienfuegos is not as good. The rooms are large & it is nice to have a balcony overlooking the sea, but the bed had no mattress pad, just a thin sheet between mattress & you. The blankets in closet, drapes & bedcovers were dirty-drapes had mold. The floor had not been well swept, but the bathroom was clean. All meals were adequate-some were absolutely fabulous. I feel guilty about even these complaints when you consider the life most Cubans live and all the shortages they endure.

Our leadership team of Mary Peara and our Cuban guide Magaly worked together superbly to give us a meaningful experience. They exposed us to many facets of how Cubans live and of their society and culture. We had a congenial group of 20 who asked many good questions. And we had an excellent and courteous driver, Juan Carlos, who made his own contribution to our trip.

The Cuba adventure I just returned from was one of the highlights of my life! This was my 11th Road Scholar learning adventure. All of them have been wonderful but I now rank this as #2 (right under Safari in South Africa/Zimbabwe). It was different from anything I have ever experienced. I loved every minute it......... You just have to wear your "flexibility hat" every minute while in Cuba!

Before going to Cuba with Road Scholar, I wanted to see and learn about as much of people's life in Cuba as I could. I accepted that I might see only the outside of things, from the vantage point of riding a bus. But our wonderful Cuban guide Magaly and our Road Scholar guide Mary Peara offered so many chances for us to go inside everyday stores and markets frequented by Cubans; to visit with people in their homes; and to talk with Cubans at schools, a synagogue, a community center, etc, that we did accomplish more than just scratching the surface of understanding Cuba. In addition, we could not have had a more compatible and considerate group of travelers on the trip. We hope to cross paths with some of them again.

Our trip to Cuba was terrific! Our tour leader, Mary Peara was excellent and knowledgeable. Our local guide was generous in her help and sharing the "Cuban reality". The group we traveled with shared our curiosity and interest in Cuba and a pleasure to travel with. We had many lively conversations. This more than just a tour, it was an experience in understanding the people and culture of Cuba.

Our trip to Cuba was fascinating. We are thinking a lot about both the history and the future of US-Cuban relations and will stay much more involved in this issue. Our Cuban guide, Magaly, was superb and Mary Peara, our tour leader, was thoughtful and kind. We enjoyed getting to know the other participants.

A wonderful trip. Local Guide Magaly and Road Scholar Tour Guide Federica made this a fun as well as educational trip. Our group had 24 people in it and was very well organized. We all learned a LOT about Cuba and they kept us VERY busy! What a fascinating country! Great fellow travellers, too.

Jose is a fantastic leader and could not be improved upon. The trip itself is overwhelming, cramming about a semester's worth of knowledge into a week. The days, although not physically active, are exhausting, very full. I learned more in a week than I have on other three-week trips, returning home feeling stuffed with information and impressions.

Cuba was one of the most vital and eye opening travel experiences that I have had. I will remember Cuba with the beauty of the people and the country. I will follow "the hoped for changes" and wish for the best for these lovely people. I can tell you first hand the medical care in cuba is very good. I was told that my stitches were done correctly and am healing well!! Thanks to Phil and your friendly support I have a unique story to tell with a happy ending. Linda Adler

The Cuba and Society trip was absolutely excellent. We saw many aspects of Cuba which you would never get to see on your own. Our guides were outstanding wherever we went (as were those who shepherded us around). I learned so much, and so many questions have been floating in my mind now that we have returned. I now understand why friends have raved about Road Scholar!

Cuba is a fascinating place. It has an economy that is turned upside down (the custodian who cleans the toilet and charges tourists 25 cents for toilet paper makes 10 times as much as a doctor who is paid only 1 dollar a day by the Communist government government). The law that only cars made before 1959 can be bought or sold has turned it into the world's largest classic car show. It’s sad to see the decaying grandeur of Havana, a result of government ownership of the buildings. I enjoyed the laid-back ambiance of a people who have no incentive to work. The Road Scholar tour was led by charming knowledgeable guides.

The Cuba People-to-People experience was memorable and mind-expanding. I learned so much about the country and its people. Meeting everyday folks and chatting with them was an unexpected pleasure. I thought there would be more control over who we met and our conversations with them. We had the opportunity to talk with musicians, book sellers, dancers, seniors (who were definitely spry and active), teachers, students, religious workers, hotel personnel. Food was good most of the time but it helps if you like rice with beans and seafood. The days were long and nights seemed short but we had many unforgettable experiences. Travel to Cuba with Road Scholar is highly recommended. I may return sometime. Kathy

Trip was interesting and showed some of the "reality of Cuba" and the gaps between intent and actuality. Cuban people warm, friendly, welcoming and also quite economically poor. The contrast between the two currencies in the country, convertible and national Cuban Pesos,and what was available with each was quite interesting and unfortunately problematic for the Cuban people.
I would have wanted more lectures. The level of information and instruction our Cuban guide provided was less than we have experienced on many Road Scholar adventures including those to other communist/socialist,developing countries.

Really amazing trip, the program was demanding, but enjoyed every part of it, and really loved our guides, Yeraldine and Guillermo, plus our very safe bus driver Louis. The hotels were the best possible, and the food was delicious (with the exception of breakfast at the Jagua Hotel, which was inedible. The speakers and stops were all outstanding, and we really learned a lot about the country while enjoying the experience.

Cuba Today: People and Society was an excellent educational opportunity, learning first-hand about the socio-political nature of a country and its people that few Americans know much about. Although my first trip with Road Scholar, I had minimum expectations gleaned from friends who travel often with RS. I am pleased that all of my expectations were exceeded. The group leader and Cuban guide, the lecturers, even the participants, were all engaging, interesting and capable. This visit offers a fresh perspective on why the US should re-think the imposition of our anachronistic Cuban embargo. This was a real eye-opener and a terrific trip, full of value.

Excellent, well planned trip to a fascinating country. The Cuban/American trip coordinator and the Cuban tour guide added the perspective from a family that left after the revolution and a family that stayed. Expert lecturers were interesting and informative and the people to people visits were varied and gave insight into what life is like in contemporary Cuba and the effect the US embargo has on their lives.
Accomodations and meals exceeded expectations.
We look forward to returning to the island we hope will soon no longer be "forbidden."

This was my fifth trip with Road Scholar. It (like the others) was exceptionally well planned and run. Our group leader was unflappable and cared for each participant according to their needs and abilities. Our guide in Cuba was very knowledgeable, interesting, humorous, and thoughtful. The two of them worked well together.

Cuba is a country of contradictions and contrasts, as well as a time warp back to a (very low budget) '50s. The people we met were wonderful. I highly recommend this trip.

This was a top learning experience. Our group leader, Lana, provided the information we needed to enjoy our trip, and our tour guide, Guillermo, from Havanatur, was excellent and patient with our many many questions. Our lecturers were accomplished professionals and very thought provoking. Cuba is a land of contrasts: e.g.: passing rice drying on the highway and a bio-tech firm on the same afternoon; almost all Cubans are literate, but books appear to be limited in supply. Rooms were better than expected, food was perfectly fine to really great, and always too much.
Days were long- not really phisically taxing- but I found them to be intellectually and emotionally stimulating and therefore tiring. Cuba appears to be changing rapidly. I am glad to have visited now.
Send me a PM for more specifics!

This was a super experience and should be seen before the country becomes another Miami or large city.

People are exceptional friendly, kind and welcoming.

There is no need to fear a hostile enviroment, or political control as those experiences did not happen.

When the country is open to individual travel, I would be more than willing to travel and even drive in the countryside.

This was a fantastic way to experience Cuba for the first time. Besides having a charming group leader and informative Cuban guide, the participants were all interconnected through The Friendship Force. Gave me the feeling I wasn't traveling with a group of strangers. The knowledge I received will help me to hold meaningful discussions with anyone on the subject of Cuba.

This was an absolutely amazing trip! Our group facilitator was incredible--enthusiastic, flexible, warm, helpful, and fun. We had a wonderful and extremely knowledgeable guide, and a marvelous bus driver who was as good on the dance floor as he was behind the wheel. I learned so much and had the opportunity to experience a wide berth of Cuban culture and life in a very short time. Cuban people are vibrant, resilient, and have endured so much. I so appreciated the insiders' perspective that this experience provided.

For me, this was my best Road Scholar experience. I had long wanted to visit Cuba and this was a phenomenal trip. We did so much in such a short time and thanks to our great group leader everything went very well. I learned so much and will be sorting out the details for some time, and for sure I will never see Cuba again in the same way that I did. The Cuban people are delightful and I truly enjoyed my time in their country.

Place is very important to us so in that sense the trip was a success.
One reason for this trip was to revisit a Cuba I(Bill) had visited as a college student (and show my wife) just a few months after the 1959 Castro revolution. I visited with a friend after riding bicycles from Hannibal, MO to Key West, FL and on to Santa Clara, Cuba to see Cuban college friends. So Santa Clara was the on the planned itinerary and the place I wanted to spend a little time. So for 52 years I had waited for a revisit to Santa Clara. We had a great time at the senior center and on the way back to the bus I asked our Cuban leader if we could detour just three blocks to see the area I had spent two weeks with my Caban friends in 1959. The answer was no. I think I had a lot to offer the group because I had photos of what it was like in 1959...before our Cuban guide was born! A missed opportunity.
I admit I (Bill) was more interested in the pre 1959 cars than most members of the group and kept lagging behind but I think some free time would take care of that.

I think ending the days activities mid afternoon would give some much needed free time. As it was by the time we finished dinner it was dark. We never had the time to even dip our toe in the pool.

Our Group Leader Cuqui Zuloaga really did a great job keeping us on task and taking care of problems but the the Cuban guide (who knew the facts) did not interact with the 24 of us in the group. She almost always ate with the bus driver at a separate table and rarely personally interacted with us.

Don't let these negative comments keep you from going...go to Cuba with Road Scholar and be flexible and you will have a great time. Had a lot more to say but the 2000 character limit cut us off.

The best part of this trip is the chance to interact with the Cuban people. They are muy amable. Join a conga line in a senior community center, dance with the performers at a Santeria church, enjoy the children's performances at the Beny More school, and share a cup of coffee and conversation with a local family.

Bob from Bethesda, MD number of programs attended: 1 Date attended: 4/8/12-4/16/12 The Cuban tour provided a fine experience mainly because it gave access to a country that is out-of-bounds for most Americans. Our understanding of the society was fostered by several good lectures and by the work of two guides, one from the U.S., the other a Cuban native. The highlights of the trip were the explorations of Old Havana, and the interior cities of Trinidad and Cienfuegos. All of them have numerous examples of colonial architecture and urban design. Cuba Today: People and Society is somewhat a misrespresentation of this tour. Rather it is a nostalgic visit to pre-revolutionary Cuba and one cannot but feel in a time warp characterized by old Detroit cars, Daiquiris and fond memories of Papa Hemingway. Just consider: most Cubans consider education, medical care and old age pensions to be the principal achievements of their Revolution. And yet, we never saw one school, one medical facility, nor did we get to talk about such subjects with ordinary Cubans. The leadership of the revolution is presented by images of Che Guevara who has been dead all of these years. More than fifty years after the Cuban Revolution, I did not walk away with a balanced view of its victories and failures and how its people expect to move forward in the years ahead.
