At Sea, Cuba

Jan 01, 2018 - Harmony V


Today we traveled from Casilda Bay toward Siguanea Bay on the southwestern coast of Isla de Juventud. Since our guests could not leave the ship we had various activities spread out through the day. Our first activity was a lecture by Berit Solstad who presented “Cuba’s Seas and Shores”, a lecture that covered ocean life, currents, coral reefs, and much more. The second activity was a Domino lesson in “Viradito” by our Cuban guide Juan Jose. Right before lunch Fabio Esteban presented the talk “Photography 101: an Introduction to Photographic Techniques.” Later in the day we had two additional lectures: the first one by Juan Jose was titled “The History of Cuba” and the second one, by Fabio Esteban, was titled “Advances in Cave Research in Cuba”.  After dinner there was a movie, Yank Tank, and all went to sleep.
