Celi’s Feet in the Cuban Sand

SYNOPSIS: ¬†Celibeth’s reflections: ¬†

Of all the places on earth to visit, abroad and here in my own country, I can honestly say that traveling to Cuba was never on my radar. A chance trip with my WCC Spanish teacher in 2001 introduced me to this place of so many different looking people, smells and sounds…everybody seemed to smoke cigarettes and the cars emitted diesel fumes that would make my friends back home insane. I had not yet travelled to New Orleans at that time, but when I was there years later the broken concrete sidewalks and the exposed electrical wires and cables sticking out of the sides of buildings, also the smells of food and cedar wood reminded me of Habana.VIEW PHOTOS AND READ THE WHOLE STORY
