projects for those with disabilities, visit organic and urban community gardens,

direction in which Cuba is going. Explore the Pinar del Rio countryside, visit
the Theological Seminary and the community projects in which they are involved.
Go to nightclubs and concerts, -- A non stop week of education and contact
so hard to sum up in a paragraph!
Yes, it is true. People to People licenses are being held up by
pure venomous politics. In fact, for the organizations we work with, this is
the last People to People trip until their licenses are renewed. We think
depending on the outcome of the election and the might of the Cuban Right, the
license renewals will come through. But this a moment to call your Congress
people and urge them to push People to People travel forward, as well as the
right of all people to travel. You can link to the Latin Americna Working Group
and find out what's happening and who to call or write. Click here.
