Science Is My Specialty Goes to Cuba

I am the self proclaimed Kostas “Gus” Portokalos of the science world.  You know Kostas “Gus” Portokalos.  He is the father in the 2002 movie, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.”  He related everything to Greek culture and the Greek language.  That is what I do with science.  I think about the science behind everything I see and do.   Since I have been 18 years old I have either been studying science, teaching science, supervising those who teach science, or writing about science.  Thinking about the scientific principles behind everything is what I do. So when I went to Cuba last month on a People to People tour with Road Scholar, it seemed normal to me to look at Cuba through the lens of a retired science teacher.  I have decided to dedicate the next several postings to things I learned and observed on this trip.
