I am writing this ahead of time, and scheduling it to be posted at the exact time of my departure to Miami, where I will relax for just over 24 hours before I get on another plane bound for the Biennial Art Festival in Havana. This is one of my wildest dreams come true, and I can't wait to share my experiences when I return. If it is at all possible for me to write from Havana I will, but in the meantime I have more posts scheduled while I am gone.
"In Cuba music is anything but that. It's not a luxury or commercial entertainment but something essential, like eating, breathing and sleeping. It is an integral part of living, and that for me was extraordinary and very moving because I've never lived in a place where this was the case." ~Wim Wenders
