Cuba Tour

In February of 2016, the U.S. struck a deal with the Cuban government to resume scheduled flights between the two countries. Now, for the first time in Missouri State University's history, a group of students took a winter intercession course in the long banned island.  I'm Nicki Donnelson and today my guests are Dr. Alexander Wait, professor of biology at Missouri State, and Ericka Fetner, microbiology student. They are here to share about the experience of visiting Cuba in the course, The History, Culture and Ecology of Cuba: Past, Present and Future.
