The recent normalization of relations between the US and Cuba has opened up travel opportunities in Cuba. This reminded me of a natural building conference in Cuba about 12 years ago that was a big success. Apparently there’s lots of natural building in Cuba in out of the way places (largely out of necessity). This information isn’t widely published due to the remote locations and the political situation. There’s likely a treasure trove of things that could be learned for those who have the time and money to explore what’s going on there.
