5 Things I Have Learned From My Cuba Trip

14 Jan

Working Like Worms

12 Jan

While we were at Vivero Alamar, one of the running jokes was that the hardest workers on the farm were the worms used to compost all the waste at the farm into rich top soil. If that’s the case, then we’ve been working like worms.

The team Cuba got back on January 9th, took a well deserved day of rest, and then got straight to work on the 11th. We’re all really pleased with all the progress that we’ve made even in such a short amount of time. Our current big news is that we are publishing some of our pictures and stories on CNN iReport. So far, Neff, Rachel, Alexandra, and Ben have posted, with more stories in the works. Ben’s photo essay on vintage Cuban cars is already in the process of being vetted for use in other CNN outlets.

Besides being very excited for that news, we have more cool things in the works that we can’t wait to share. Hopefully we will be able to keep updating the blog daily as we get closer and closer to our January 24th deadline. With well over 2,000 images and at least 10 hours of video footage, the hardest part is going to be picking what to share.


Ben’s blog was vetted! Check it out.Screen Shot 2013-01-12 at 5.53.43 PM
