On Tuesday, PETA’s “Lettuce Ladies” took an inaugural flight to Havana.

Armed with green suitcases proclaiming, “Vegan Ambassador to Cuba,” the Lettuce Ladies have been hard at work distributing PETA Latino’s Spanish-language vegan starter kits, giving an animal rights talk at a local school, delivering much-needed veterinary supplies to local animal-rescue groups, and posing for photos with tourists and with airport staff, who put them in the VIP immigration line. Their tour is now wrapping up, and they’ll return to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, tomorrow afternoon.

More photos from the Lettuce Ladies’ week in Cuba are available here.
