TIC Time No More!
I sure am sorry I am no longer on “TIC” time………..”This is Cuba” time. Cuba was an amazing country to visit. Twenty very fortunate Encore folks had a fabulous visit to a fabulous country. It indeed was a people to people exchange. We met with seniors at a senior center in Havana and sang for them, we sang for two-four year olds at a school run by wonderful and energetic nuns, we sang for the owners of a coffee plantation high up in the Sierra del Escambray Mountains, and we sang for the incredible Cantores de Cienfuegos!!! We had lunch with fisherman in the fishing village of Cojimar. We had lively chats with Cubans about their past and their future. They are so very happy the relations with the US are finally mending. They were so welcoming to us. We saw so much and we were lucky to see Cuba without the Starbucks and MacDonald’s that will probably be popping up in the future. I surely hope that isn’t so.
I am already thinking about our next trip back.
