Cuba – Kaplan R.

My fascination w/ the history and culture of Cuba has been ongoing for the past 15 years. When I was informed of this wonderful opportunity to visit the country while doing yoga daily, I jumped on it! Although I entered the country with an open mind and heart, I did not expect a similar response to be reciprocated by the Cuban people. I was pleasantly surprised as to how welcoming they were to our small group of lovely ladies.

Throughout my time in Cuba, I felt that I gained a greater appreciation for the people and their culture. I enjoyed the fact that the people seemed genuine and engaging, which in today’s world seems to be obsolete. Taking time to engage in lovely and even controversial conversations made this trip worth while. I enjoyed not only the beauty of the country, but also of the people. So, thank you Laurel for making this journey possible for me, and I look forward to joining you again in the future for another adventure!
