Cuba in photos 

It’s hard for me to believe that six months—almost an entire baseball season—have passed since I returned from a week-long trip to Cuba with 15 AU students. The story I wrote about their alternative spring break in the current issue the magazine details their experiences on the island, where they studied access to higher education.

The students and I took thousands of photos (even though my camera broke after the first day!), only a handful of which ran in the article. So we decided to assemble some more into our first-ever magazine slideshow, narrated by yours truly. I tried to include to some interesting information, facts, and observations about the country that I couldn’t get into the story.

After more than one take, this is what we came up with. I hope you enjoy it as much as people seemed to like the story.
