VANDALIA – All but closed to Americans for a half a century, Cuba is finally ready for travel. Take a visual tour of Havana – the buildings, the people, the vintage cars and symbols of the revolution – with recent traveler Chuck Duritsch. He’ll talk about his experiences at the Vandalia Branch Library, 500 S. Dixie Drive, on Monday, May 16, 6:30 p.m.

Duritsch, Manager of Dayton Metro Library’s External Relations Department, traveled to Cuba in February on a People-to-People tour. People-to-People travel allows U.S. citizens to travel to Cuba on a limited basis and participate in cultural experiences.

“Having grown up on Ricky Ricardo and the Bay of Pigs invasion, I was anxious to travel to Cuba only to discover socialism is decaying as quickly as its Spanish colonial buildings,” said Duritsch. “Only a 45-minute flight from Miami, Cuba is just beginning to emerge from its 1950s time warp into a developing tourist business.”

The program is free and open to the public. Duritsch will also talk about his Cuba trip at the Belmont, Wilmington-Stroop and West Carrollton Branch Libraries this summer.
