  • Cuba: Random Images

    I felt guilty about the number of photos I posted yesterday. So this is a bleed-over of photos I wanted to include but didn’t.   Crumbling buildings…this is a common site everywhere in the city country.   Old cars. Everywhere. EVERYWHERE.

  • Cuba: Day Six

    Warning: This post has a ton of photos. More photos than text, actually. If you can handle that, scroll on.   Day Six was our free day.

We didn’t know – that’s why we had adjusted our […]

Our four days of work were supporting a church in the Tamarindo neighborhood. The church, approximately 70 members, meets in a home. The owner of the home (standing […]
