This Thursday, I’ll be departing for Havana. I’m taking part in Cubaball, an annual cultural exchange tour of Cuba, focusing on baseball and history. Our group (comprised of about 20 Americans and Canadians) will watch six baseball games, visit numerous historic sites in Havana and elsewhere on the island, meet Cuban ballplayers and various others, and talk baseball, culture, and history (late into the night, no doubt!).
One suspects that perhaps a bit of rum and cigars will be involved.
I’ve been warned that internet access from Cuba will be, well, unreliable, so I’ll make no promises to provide any real-time updates, but upon my return I’ll let ya know how it went.
