“A special remembrance:  getting to meet and know Maria Elena, the architect, who first talked to us about the different types of architecture in Havana.  She spoke to us w/ expertise and passion and then led us on an architectural tour of her city.  Enjoying lunch later with her was an added treat.  But to top it off, I got to reconnect w/her this summer in Chicago where a group of us fellow Cuba travelers shared a delightful evening with her. It really is the people, namely Maria Elena, that I remember the most.”

“I traveled to Cuba under the auspices of the Copperbridge Foundation. What was most impressive was how they connected us to two local dance and theatre groups that were exposing and teaching disadvantaged children the joys of the performing arts. Seeing such enthusiastic teachers and parents struggling against economic odds was heart wrenching yet joyous. Without Copperbridge’s experience and connection to Cuban culture, I doubt if I would have been exposed and been able to aid such groups.”
