Friendship Force Goes to Cuba

Friendship Force Goes to Cuba

March 31 - April 8, 2023 

The Sacramento Friendship Force has an opportunity to travel to Cuba in 2023.  This is not an official Friendship Force Journey, but we are encouraging our members to participate in this cultural event.

We will be examining Cuba's art, culture, gastronomy, dance, music and history in this support the Cuban people program. We will be based in Havana but we will also explore Vinales Valley, Matanzas to the east and Las Terrazas to the west. We will explore the wave of new privately owned restaurants or "paladars" in Cuban's homes. 

Facilitator: Paul Bardwil Paul has been traveling to Cuba designing cultural programs for universities, hospitals and specialized groups since 1998. His passion is to give Americans the opportunity to formulate their own opinion of the forbidden island called Cuba.
