Ready for a trip to Cuba in June? I can help you get you a legal visa IF you are professional AND this itinerary will help you with research in your career.
I decided to organize a delegation to Cuba to research sustainability and technology practices:
Why: because Cuba has adopted many innovative practices in the areas of organic farming, urban farming, and biodiversity AND they have a unique perspective towards innovation and technology.
I have traveled to Cuba many times and have deep ties and am fluent in both English and Spanish and for years friends and colleagues have asked me to guide them….SO, now is the time…I hope you can join in.
Sustainability and Technology research delegation–June 20-30, 2010
