First Departures

The first part of the U.S. contingent headed to Havana today as the ESPN production crew and a about a dozen U.S. journalists took the 90-mile charter flight from Miami to Cuba. While they are getting their feet wet, the U.S. team has one more training session scheduled here before we take off tomorrow afternoon. Several international news organizations are planning on covering the team's arrival and time in Havana, adding to the flavor of the experience. Sports Illustrated soccer writer Grant Wahl got a head start, and filed his first impressions of Cuba. Interesting stuff...
