It was honestly one of the most eye-opening experiences from seeing a different culture as well as going without internet or phone service for the 3 weeks that I stayed. I did have the option to pay for slow internet or pay to call home but I decided to save the money and live in the past. I rode in cars older than my parents. I got to try new foods and listen to many Cubans tell me about their life. I was pushed outside my comfort zone by going 'alone' meaning that I didn't have any friends or family that went with me. I made friends in the same group as me and we all looked out for each other and had an amazing trip.
