“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.”
