This past Thursday, AP students went to New Haven to have a great cultural experience.
The visit was divided into two parts. We watched a movie called, “Las Estrellas del Estuario”. We shared the room with students from New Haven. Even though the movie had some technological issues, we had the opportunity to learn about Puerto Rico’s environmental problems and briefly about their history of enslavement.
Students asked a few questions in Spanish to the director Sonia Fritz, who shared that she is of Mexican and German descent and currently lives in Puerto Rico.
We went to an authentic Cuban restaurant (Soul of Cuba). Personally, I recommend the restaurant; it has delicious food and a great location. It is a small and cozy place with lots of stories, art, and pictures from the family of the Cuban owner. We enjoyed the Cuban sandwiches, empanadas, and desserts as well as the company of a friendly staff and great conversations with Jesus Puerto (the owner).
