And just like that, I’m back. My trip to Cuba was very enlightening and I really enjoyed it. My trip wasn’t the typical and I thank @diaspora_travel_trade for that. In 3 days, I lived, slept and breathed the city of Havana...I had lunch with and learned about the Santeria religion from a Babalawo (and received a blessing!), I had salsa dancing lessons, I visited a museum on the Africa-Cuba connection, I donated to and visited a community youth arts center, I got artsy at a former oil factory turned premiere art gallery and nightclub, I had dinner with a famous Cuban Hip Hop duo, I jammed to Cuban Timba and Jazz music nightly, I attended a colonial cannon shooting ceremony on top of a fortress, and I ate traditional meals and drank traditional drinks every day...and this doesn’t fully capture all I experienced. Throughout my trip, I was able to be more present than usual because of the limited WiFi access and for that I’m thankful. I’ve longed to visit Cuba for years to learn about the culture and I’m thankful to have finally had the opportunity. I guess my Orishas led me here when it was right 😉.
