Cuba with eyes (and hearts) wide open
Cuba is an amazing destination for photographers and people interested in experiencing a culture that has been off-limits to US residents officially for many many years. The people are wonderful - a rich ethnic blend, a resilient, proud culture. Entering Cuba is like going back in time - and you really are when you hit the streets with colorful old cars from the 40's and 50's puttering by you, past decaying façades of French colonial influence. Around every corner, there are fascinating things to see and experience. Our legal, people-to-people cultural trip is designed to put you in touch with the local people in all the areas we visit, which in turn provides for wonderful photographic opportunities. We'll visit Havana, Viñales, Trinidad and other locations, going from the city to tobacco and sugar cane farms, to natural preserves, and to colorfully painted villages. We'll have dates and final pricing late-March. Group limit of 12. We presently have 12 on the sign-up list. Please call 607-756-8676 (Strabo Tours) to be put on the wait list.
Traveling with Brenda opens my eyes, as she shares her love for the places we visit and points out unique perspectives on photographing the landscape and the people.
