Teacher Ann Marie Conway and students Jacke Conway and Jacob Petroskey from Charlevoix High School told about the trip to Cuba last June. The group of students and adults spent almost two weeks in Cuba. They said the visit was like stepping back in time. The Cuban people thought they were Europeans and were surprised to learn that they were Americans. The Cuban’s were very friendly and were anxious for better relations with our country. They also asked many questions. They stayed in a five-star hotel with great food. However, meals outside the hotel consisted almost entirely of beans and rice. The tour was closely monitored. The students said they would have liked to have had the opportunity to interact with students but they did not have that opportunity.
