Well, Cuba is now officially checked off of my bucket list. For a long time I have wanted to travel there, but it is difficult for U.S. citizens to get in and out of the country, unless you have a special visa. And thanks to the team of MaiCuba, about 150 of us (including about 30 magicians) were able to travel into the country as a "cultural exchange" where we entertained the local citizens in an effort to show the locals that magic is a performing art and should be respected like ballet, theater and orchestras. The people of Cuba were very friendly and welcoming to our group and the event was unlike any I have ever attended. It certainly was not a magic convention in the conventional sense. There were no stage contests, dealers, nor were the lecturers hawking lectures notes and other items.

The first of six updates was really a Cuban Travelogue so you feel as if you in the seat with me all the way from the U.S. to Cuba. The following updates are conversations with registrants, talent and organizers so you get their viewpoints on this one-time, special event.

Here are the links to the individual podcasts:
