Cuba is amazing! We started school last week and haven’t looked back since! We are so busy that the days just seem to fly by. Our classes are great and they are scheduled perfectly. We have one class on Monday and Fridays, two classes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with a break on Thursdays. Mondays and Wednesdays are spent at the University of Havana, while classes on Tuesdays and Fridays are right across the street from the hotel in a nearby foundation/public library. All of our professors are wonderful, passionate people who are well educated on all types of subject matters. I find them wildly fascinating. At times they have very different opinions and views of the world than most Americans do and it is like a breath of fresh air. They love it when we ask questions and debate and argue and get into real discussions about things. This encourages and motivates us to read more and find out additional information so that we can have more informed viewpoints. Overall, every time we walk out of a classroom, our heads are spinning from all the new things and ideas we have been introduced to. I sure hope the weeks don’t fly by too quickly!
