“In the the last 16 years, what do you think has been the moment of greatest change for Cuba?” I asked JesÃºs, our seasoned, straight-shooting Cuban guide. “Now” was his instant response.
I felt it too. From a revitalized Havana Vieja to the mushrooming number of creative paladares (small, private home-based restaurants) signs of convulsive change were everywhere, more so than at any other time since my first visit to the island in 1996.
We’d like to thank all those who supported “The Art Of Giving” at Mattie Rhodes Art Gallery in December. What an amazing collection of art and wine! We’ve raised over $3,500 in funds that will go directly to a young emerging artist from Oaxaca Mexico to continue their education. The awards ceremony is just one of the many highlights on our 10th Anniversary Trip this spring.
