Day 31 La Habana – Domingo

My body clock is still on Douala time, but I promise, it really is getting better. Slowly, surely, one day at a time I am slaying the tight grip of the jet lag beast. For instance, instead of awakening at 2:00 am EST like I did on Day 28, today I woke up at 4:00 am EST. That is two more hours, this is progress, my spirit is catching up with my body, so I have no complaints. Being optimistic, the early morning wake up has given me the opportunity to get organized, plan and complete important paperwork for the 2017 season.

Plus yesterday, the West Coast contingent arrived via commercial airlines for a 10 day maiden journey to Cuba. This cultural immersion field research project focuses on Afro Cuban Cultural Traditions, Architecture and Music in Public Spaces. On this project itinerary we will explore La Habana, journey to Santiago de Cuba for two nights visit, enjoy a day trip to Las Terrazas and ViƱales, then mid week three more guests will join the fold and we will all attend the 32nd International Festival Jazz Plaza.

Although later today I might get sleepy, no worries, we are here in Cuba, we have our Festival passes, Santiago flight tickets, and we are ready to have a good time.
