Never has a news reporting trip on six continents, to more than 100 countries, elicited as many questions from family and friends as a journey to Cuba with my wife Fran Golden at the close of 2016.
For 11 days, we joined a Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic people-to-people tour to Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Playa Girón, and Nueva Gerona, Juventud. Three nights, we lived at the venerable but dated Hotel Nacional in Havana. Seven nights, our home was a 150-foot motor-sailor ship in the waters of the southwest coast of Cuba where we (peacefully) walked at the Bay of Pigs.
