Fw: Painet - Bill Bachmann Cuba trip 2010

Subject: Painet - Bill Bachmann Cuba trip 2010
Sent: Jan 19, 2010 6:01 AM

Successful travel and stock photographer Bill Bachmann will be directing
another Cuba Photo Mission from March 28th thru April 9th, 2010. This
trip is Bill's third 13-day directed trip with the opportunity to see
time stand still in Cuba from the 1950's before the embargo started. This
will be a wonderful opportunity to take photos of all the old Classic 50s
autos, colorful people, colorful music, and fabulous old buildings before
the embargo gets lifted and Cuba changes forever.

His group will have a special Humanitarian Visa to fly directly via
45-minute charter American Eagle flight to/from Miami to Havana. Bill has
traveled extensively throughout Cuba four times and several Painet
shooters just returned from a wonderful adventure with his last trip in
October, 2009. The price is right and we also will bring much-needed
medical supplies to this colorful country and people.

This trip will fill up quickly, so for more information, look at Bill's
website . Bill is on assignment this month in
Tunisia in the Sahara Desert, so if you want all the information about
the trip, email him at his traveling email billbachmann@yahoo. com and he
will get back with you with the itinerary, pricing, and all other
information. This is a rare opportunity, so don't pass it up.

Picks of the Week

When a massive, 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti on Tuesday, January 12, it took less than a minute for the quake -- the largest to hit the desperately poor Caribbean nation in more than 200 years -- to destroy large swaths of the capital city, Port-au-Prince. The photographs that emerged from the devastation (the quake struck with a force equivalent to 35 Hiroshima-sized nuclear bombs, according to one expert) are chilling, heartrending, and, occasionally, inspiring, as survivors worked to bring order to the chaos and rescue victims still trapped amid what seemed ruins without end.
