2016 / 2017
With the opening up of Cuba in 2016, I traveled to Cuba several times with my friends Vassanta and Caitie in an effort to create a Cuban Tour. We explored Havana, Vinales (tobacco growing region), Trinidad (colonial town surrounded by mountain jungles, sugar cane fields and ocean), and Cienfuegos (unique colonial French architecture) to create a culturally immersive fine art tour of the country. I was blessed to make many friends in the art and travel community to create an educational, fun filled, and artistic experience being able to create in some unique historic homes, buildings and the beautiful natural world that Cuba offers. Unfortunately geopolitics changed making operating a tour too unstable. and had to postpone the dream. However, I maintain my friendships with these warm / creative people, and hope to launch it again when the political situation improves.
