Cuba

May 16, 2011 at 7:54 am (Travel)

In a week from right now, I’ll be en route to Havana, Cuba.

The trip basically fell into my lap, with plans beginning to form during a phone call with my pastor when he said, “Hey, do you want to go to Cuba?” It’s pretty obvious what my answer to that kind of question would be.

I’ll be spending a week on the island, tagging along behind a pastor from Mexico to a youth conference. Needless to say, it’s essential that I brush up on my Spanish. Most of it has come back to me, but there’s plenty I’ve forgotten as well and I don’t expect to have a translator. We’ll also spend a couple of days in Varadero, where I plan to sit on a beach for a little while at least.

I’m pretty stoked … another country to explore, new people to meet, more Spanish to absorb. No matter how great my own plans are, God always has something better up his sleeve.
