Day 1 in Cuba involved lunch on the 3?rd floor at ??? with a great view of Havana.

Afterwards, the school walked along the Malecon for a late afternoon view of the ocean and daily life for Cubans.

Our final destination for our first day was for the canon ceremony at the Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña. This happens every evening at 9pm to signify the closing of the ports.

Day 2 in Cuba involved a little relaxation and exploration with a trip to the beach then a visit to old Havana. The night life was a treat and here is a sample of the band Caracol de la Habana playing at La Vitrola.

Day 3 in Cuba involved the school traveling to Miramar, a subdivision of Havana, to learn some Cuban salsa from ???.

Next was a lesson in percussion from ???.

Afterwards, the school had a fantastic Italian lunch at ???.

Mentoring Academy's program to Cuba involved a stop at the Bay of Pigs, a significant part of history between the USA and Cuba. One of our students, Joey, and Mentor, Garret, also took advantage of a scuba dive in the area and Joey captured some great video of the event.

We visited the town of Trinidad and explored a ceramics studio by a local artist. Thanks to our student Tucker for recording the visit.
