It’s going to be a full moon this trip!

Cuba is the story

   YOU'LL TELL

FOR YEARS AND YEARS

Step across the threshold into the mystery of Cuba

Photograph. Goodwill. Friendships

The future is not written. It’s not preordained. It unfolds as a result of our action. It’s the choices we make and the risks we take.
