Oxbow board member, Kani Meyer and her husband Dave, emeritus professor of Geology at UC, will present a talk on Cuba based on Kani’s trip in 2003 and Dave’s dive trip there in June of last year. In many ways Cuba seems caught in the late 50s, with wonderfully kept cars and elegant but crumbling buildings but the people are very warm and welcoming. In 2003 most of our time was spent in Havana with a short excursion east to a small village. Dave spent most of his time in the Jardines de la Reina off the southern coast of Cuba. This area has been long protected from fishing and has regulated diving activities so that the reefs are some of the best in the Caribbean.
