Car Museum: You don’t have to go undercover to join Spy Photographer Brenda Priddy, on a tour of Cuba and a cross section of its estimated 60,000 vintage cars this October. It is U.S. Government-approved, week-long trip accompanied by an Earthbound Expeditions program director and a bilingual Cuban national guide. It includes one night in Miami, two nights in Colonial Trinidad and five nights in Havana. A highlight of the trip will be interaction with members of “A lo Cubano” a Cuba classic & historic car club–one of the most important and active car clubs in Cuba with excellent cars and owners.
