Priceless insights into the history, culture, geography, and economy of Cuba. Priceless also to learn about the blind-natured and cruel trade-and-supplies embargo/blockade that the US maintains against Cuba: all Americans need to know about this and demand that it be ended. I was also delighted to be in a socialist and gun-free country where the views align so well with my own. It was absolutely wonderful to see the benefits of a compassionate, intelligent socialist system of government and see how Fidel and Che are still beloved there. The many conversations with artists, dancers, musicians, fishermen, and others whom we met were so valuable. All the local guides and teachers were superb. I was filled with admiration for all of them, and especially for Hector, who was with us the entire week and who was ideal in his position in all ways. Bravo, Road Scholar, for enabling this trip!
