Learning About Cuba:  Reflection by Brendan, Cuba Global Volunteer and Blake School Student. 

Surprises  – little moments of life can brighten our day when we least expect it, or can change our world view. Yesterday was a day of surprises – of finding fun and enjoyment in pulling weeds, in learning so much from simply talking to a young man about the most basic of things, in extending my arm a little too far during a magic show, and…you know the rest, or being totally amazed by a country that not too long ago I knew nothing about. But as cliche as it may sound to rave about my experience abroad, the greatest surprise of all is that every good thing you hear about Cuba is really true.
