A Unique Country in the Caribbean

To travel to Cuba today as an American, or as anyone in the world for that matter, evokes a number of feelings. First you see a country that could have been. What we mean by that is the capital city of Havana was positioned in the 1920s to become an international influence. They constructed their capitol building in fact, to be just larger than the one in Washington D.C. To be exact, El Capitolio is one meter higher, one meter and one meter longer than the U.S. Capital building. It is also much richer in detail, if you can believe that. Secondly, and most profoundly, you see the strength of the human spirit. Life in Cuba is difficult at best, but yet the Cuban spirit and resourcefulness is extraordinary. Christine discusses what life is like in Cuba today on the podcast, and it’s not like what you would imagine.
