I recently attended the press preview for the ¡Cuba! Exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History (will be on view through August 13, 2017). It was fascinating to learn about a nation that has been closed to the rest of the world for so long. The exhibit did a great job of presenting the people, culture, natural biome, and art. It’s definitely worth a visit and has put Cuba on the map of places that I’d love to visit. See below for some of the highlights for me!
One of the first things I learned was that Cuba is an archipelago made of up more than 4,000 islands. One can imagine the diversity in plants and animals.
The literacy rate of Cuba is 99%. Amazing! However, 100% of media is government owned.
A vintage car from Cuba. Cubans had to be resourceful in keeping their old cars like new buy creating their own car parts when their cars broke down. I think that’s something our modern culture should do instead of constantly throwing away things for new products.
Since Cuba is made up of so many islands, it hosts a plethora of fauna and flora.
I was drooling over this Ajiaco (beef stew). This looks so realistic but it’s actually a replica.
