Wishlist Wednesday

We're back !
What a wonderful week.
Thanks go to the veterinarians at Jose Marti Airport.
They had their carbon paper at the ready to facilitate our entry.
As always, we arrived with our supplies pre-cleared by MINVEC/EMED and the Institute of Veterinary Medicine (IMV)
Our four bags, totaling over 200 lbs, took care of our checked baggage allowance.
Thanks to those of you who have delivered donations during your vacations.

This allows us to concentrate on the delivery of medicine, anesthetics and other supplies with which "travelers" would not be able to enter.

Our hosts for the week were Evora and Manuel at Prado#20
I take every opportunity I can to book into this
Casa Particulare.
With views like this, why would you stay anywhere else?

After spending the day finalizing details for the week's program Susana, Spanky Project's Coordinator, had a wonderful invitation for us.
We were invited to a performance at the Teatro Nacional de Cuba by Danza Libre dance troupe from Guantanamo Province.

Susana, on the left, searches in here bag while and her good friend Danza Libre's Director Alfredo Velazquez looks on.

After the show...

Looking forward to future reports on this trip ...
