13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Pedicab, Havana Cuba

I am enrolled in a Master’s Program at Antioch University New England and last spring signed up for Food Systems of Cuba which involved a ten-day trip to visit Cuba’s urban agricultural cooperatives. While in Havana, I came upon a pedicab driver waiting for his next fare. Small businesses like this are slowly making their way into Cuban life, and shows how Cubans have adapted and excelled at sustainable practices since the beginning of their Special Period. I think Educational Travel represents the best in sustainable travel. It is more of a cultural exchange than just regular consumer tourism.
