My husband and I just returned from a fabulous KJazz/Palos Verdes Art Center trip to the Havana Jazz Festival with Long Beach-based Cuba Tours & Travel. Their itinerary was excellent. They took us to the best restaurants and arranged for lectures on Latin music and visits to museums and artist studios. All were guided by a lovely, knowledgeable young woman, Viviana Rives. We also had the good fortune to be there Dec. 17 during the Raul Castro-President Obama announcement of normalization of relations between our two countries.
