Because of the coordination by my talented cousin Laurel Attanasio my sissy and I had the chance to travel to Cuba and learn to cook & salsa, visit the places that inspired Hemingway, eat dinner at Paladar San Cristobal – a restaurant where Obama went, meet Fidel Castro’s nephew Ramon, have a session with Fidel’s photographer, learn how Fusterlandia mosaics transformed a community, all while practicing yoga and drinking way too many mojitos with a great group of ladies!
I feel like it’s so important to visit Cuba for yourself, so you can make your own conclusions and not only base your opinion on the complicated relationship America has with the country. This experience really opened my eyes to their culture and ways of life.
If you want a similar experience, I highly encourage you to check out her upcoming retreats to places all over the world!
