Block Break Away: Cuba with Political Science Professor Juan Lindau
Feb. 3-12, 2017

Early booking price expires August 5

Dear Alumni and Friends,
Please join me on Block Break Away to Cuba February 3-12, 2017. On this exciting 10-day program, we will traverse the breadth of Cuba, from Havana to Santiago de Cuba, with three nights in Havana and six nights aboard the small sailing ship, Le Ponant.

When CC conducted its first Block Break Away to Cuba in 2014, the group traveled about the island via bus, changing hotels four times over eight days. Being on ship will allow us a little more relaxation time while en route to our destinations. We will visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Old Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, and the Viñales Valley.

Accompanied by experienced, English-speaking Cuban hosts, we will be able to immerse ourselves in a comprehensive and intimate travel experience that explores the history, culture, art, language, cuisine, and rhythms of daily Cuban life. We will meet with local Cuban experts including musicians, artists, farmers, academics, and architects.

I will begin with a brief overview of Cuba's political, social and economic history seeking to explain why a socialist revolution occurred on the island in 1959. We will then explore the main features of this revolution and the most important phases of the Castro regime before concluding with an examination of its contemporary political and economic situation.
I look forward to meeting all of you!
