Semester at Sea - Cuba

Our first official port of call was Havana, Cuba. I was really excited to go to Cuba. Not because I knew a lot about it, but because I knew most Americans were forbidden from visiting. There was only one other voyage after mine that was granted permission to visit. I enjoy being able to do things that I know other's can't ;)

Our trip began with a welcome reception hosted by The University of Havana. Luckily, I was still vegetarian at the time because many of our students and the Cuban students came down with a bad case of food poisoning. A few even ended up in the hospital.

My photos explain most of my journey and the voyage notes to the left fill in all the other details.

You really didn't like the mojito?

That is so wierd! I don't usually watch the Daily Show but when I do, I love it. Very cool!

I didn't like the mojito. I had a pomegranate mojito with Aron a few weeks ago that was pretty good but I don't like alcohol all that much and I prefer mint in my ice cream. Those are the only two mojitos I've ever had. Sadly, I didn't finish either of them.
