NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Students from Old Dominion University will travel to Cuba in March.

The university says the spring break visit is due to the country’s warming relationship with the U.S.

Grad students and undergraduates will focus much of their time exploring Cuba’s unique cuisine and farming methods. The food is not dependent on mass advertising. And it’s not subjected to industrialized farming practices or chemicals.

It will be a first-of-its kind trip for the university.
