Bay of Pigs – Constance Attilio

The trip to the Bay of Pigs was truly an incredible experience. We were able to travel through the roads where the actual bombings and battles took place. The two museums we visited gave us an intense insight into the Cuban opinion of the entire historical event. Our tour guide, Raul, gave us a thorough explanation of the affair, really bringing the history into our excursion. We drove past numerous tombstones where bombings occurred and saw a billboard announcing where the invasion had been stopped. We were not only learning about the tragic event but were able to see the actual places.
