On January 15, a team of bold, innovative librarians from the City University of New York (CUNY) set out to do what many librarians in the United States have not: travel to Cuba for a weeklong expedition of cultural, professional, and informational exchange. The mission was as exhilarating as it was challenging. I was among the ten librarians in the delegation representing a wide range of backgrounds and skills. Most of us did not know one another previously, and the potluck of talent was a unique aspect of the trip. Throughout the journey, members demonstrated a spirit of adventure and wonder and the desire to connect with Cuban information professionals and absorb the culture as best they could.
