ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
In the summer of 2006, Leonie Sherman and Tanya Stiller rode bikes and occasionally hitch-hiked across Cuba. In six weeks they learned to salsa, suffered from heat exhaustion, were placed under house arrest and heard the true story behind sexual assault in Cuba. Along the way Fidel got sick and they explored a little known eco-tourist haven with roaring waterfalls and immense cave systems. Come hear Leonie tell stories and answer questions about this rapidly changing island nation.
