Canoe Tour February 23 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm Enjoy a day out on the Coral Gables Waterway! This leisure canoeing experience led by Miami EcoAdventures and Coral Gables Museum staff encompasses both nature and history in a delightful blend of unique natural vistas and historic landmarks. We’ll explore Gables’ manmade system of canals, which added an impressive 40 miles of waterfront to the City – from Biscayne Bay through the residential section, to the grand golf course at the Biltmore Hotel. A surprising amount of wildlife can be seen in the water and on the shore. Registrants will meet at the Coral Gables Museum at 9:30am and start with a self-guided audio tour* of “Creating the Dream: George E. Merrick and His Vision for Coral Gables.” Then, we’ll board a bus to the Waterway and onto your canoe for a two-hour paddling adventure! *Guests may also catch a 1pm guided exhibit tour after the canoe tour. Fees included. Times Read: 0

This in-depth and comprehensive investigation describes how “revolutionary” Cuba essentially occupied Venezuela, not through a large military force in-situ but asymmetrically, by placing assets strategically to command Venezuela’s security forces, economy, information, communications and society in general. It explores the evolution of a long-held plan that led to a radical political alliance and regional integration project and the establishment of an international criminal network. Finally, it explains how the much smaller, poorer and underdeveloped Cuba pulled this off thanks to a unique imperialist brand and methodological toolkit arisen from the totalitarian nature of its system. The implications are far from regional.
