Cuba: Here come the Huskies!

UW Alumni Tours has been awarded a People to People travel permit and is offering a trip to Cuba in January 2012. “Cuba—Through the Eyes of the People” takes place from Jan. 8-15, 2012. It is the first UWAA trip to Cuba since 2002.

The January 2012 trip invites alumni and friends to explore the exciting art and remarkable architecture of Cuba with a special look into the country’s intellectual community. You will spend five days in storied Havana and two days in historic cities on the southern coast. There, you will interact with talented artists and cultural leaders, and enjoy the warm hospitality of this captivating Caribbean nation.

Tour highlights include a walking tour of Old Havana; Trinidad’s main plaza and museums; an informal morning rehearsal of the Contemporary Dance Company of Cuba; and a trip to Playa Girón, the landing site for seaborne forces of armed Cuban exiles in the Bay of Pigs Invasion.
