April 9th 2015 – Heading to Cuba tomorrow, my fifth trip in five years. But this one promises to be different. Not since reporting on Nepal’s revolution in 1990 have I visited a country poised so hopefully and uncertainly on the cusp of major changes — changes that will conceivable alter all our preconceptions.
Cuba is not yet online in any meaningful or truly useful sense of the word (one of the most eagerly anticipated changes, for sure). But I’ll try to do some writing and photography while I’m there, and revive this long-dormant blog from whatever port I can find. This will be Ethical Traveler’s busiest trip for sure — with 16 participants — but even if I can only post a few times during the next 10 days it will be worthwhile. Stay tuned, and wish me luck!
