As a mid-week treat last week, we got to attend the Annual International Book Fair here in Havana. I think we all went into the experience without knowing what to expect and were wonderfully overwhelmed by the gorgeous setting, myriad of book vendors, musical acts, food stand, and generally beautiful (albeit it hot and sunny) place to spend the afternoon.
This trip came in the middle of an extremely full week of programming including a visit to the Literacy Museum, a tour of the University here in Havana, a night out dancing, all of our regular classes, our weekly evening of Cuban cinema and a weekend trip to the beaches of Varadero. Needless to say, we all slept soundly last night!
