Greetings from Cuba Education Tours,
Our Cuban and Canadian team has been working double time to help you go to
Cuba this year and next.
We've come up with a raft of programs for North Americans to experience
Cuba first hand and interact with its people. All who receive this email
are warmly welcomed to participate and encouraged to share this invitation
with your friends. We hope you can travel with us soon as change is
constant on the island and there is no better time to visit Cuba than now.
SPECIAL TOURS FOR CUBA AFICIONADOS
NATURAL AND HISTORICAL CUBA: Spend ten days on the island learning about
nature, organic farming, architecture and culture. Plus you'll welcome in
the New Year in historic Trinidad: a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its
wealth of century's old buildings.
LESBIAN AND GAY CUBA TOUR: All are invited to attend this groundbreaking
trip to witness progress unfolding on the island for sexual minorities.
The itinerary is overflowing with unique cultural and people-to-people
activities. Participants will dance with Cubans while ushering in the New
Year on the 49th anniversary of their Revolution.
TEACHERS FAMILIARIZATION CUBA TOUR: We have a special tour for working
teachers to join this December 2007. It's a review of the island's
education system, chock full of cultural activities, including New Year's
festivities in Havana. US teachers can participate legally.
VOLUNTEERISM FOR RETIRED EDUCATORS AND ESL TUTORS: One of our most popular
programs is ESL Cuba Volunteer. It's an occasion for retired educators and
ESL tutors to spend three weeks in Havana sharing their English language
skills with primary level and university students. All who have
participated in the past have returned optimistic -- if not elated. A few
spots remain open on our November 2007 and February 2008 sessions.
HAVANA INT'L JAZZ FESTIVAL: The first tour to combine the world's best
jazz and Cuban nature and culture. This nine-day program kicks off
February 10, 2008. Participants will explore Havana and western Cuba
first, then enjoy four days of premium access to all Jazz Festival
concerts including the exclusive opening and closing ceremonies! You'll
stay at the official Festival headquarters, the former gangster-run '50s
era Hotel Riviera.
