Cartas de Cuba, 1: Pennsylvania pre-trip

George School's logo is a tree, which is fitting, since there are a ton of them spread out over their expansive campus.

There's a large garden, horse stables, an Alternative Energy Center...

and the new LEED certified library (below), which opens in the fall.

The pre-trip workshops were well organized and packed with information, so it was a nice change of pace to start the second day with some cheery team-building exercises...

Behold our fearless leader!

I talked a little bit w/ Rafaela (above, left) from Nicaragua re: the possibility of bringing some of my students to visit her school.

And here is our happy crew outside the meeting house, eager to get on with our aventuras cubanas!
