Last year, Kestrel and I visited Cuba. It was one of the most amazing places I have ever been to. We met the most hospitable, humble and fun people and saw the most gorgeous pristine lands. Everyone we talked to along the way shared their questioning of what Cuba would look like without Fidel Castro.

Everywhere you went in the country, there were political signs that made you feel like Castro was right there with you. 

I pulled some of my favorite photos from the trip. If you want to visually take a trip to Cuba, scroll below. Stories that accompany the photos were written by Kestrel.
