  • Cuba

    Just returned from visiting this country. It was like stepping into a time capsule. 1950’S. Havana was full of old American cars beautifully maintained. The hospitality of the Cuban people, you could not ask for more hospitable people. At nighttime, around 12midnight,1 am in the morning people were walking around the streets. Crime, compared to our cities, was quite low in Cuba. Because of the U.S. embargo, Cubans are finding it hard to survive. President Obama wanted to end the embargo, but, Donald Trump put a stop to it. If you should visit this country, make sure you pack the necessities you will need. Trying to purchase items in Cuba is most difficult. The shops don’t have them.

    Obama had eight years to lift the embargo and didn’t. Trump has postured a lot but done little, the measures currently in place are the ones he inherited from his predecessor

      Had the opportunity to visit this country a few years back. Popular destination for Canadians and Europeans to visit during the winter months. If you should have the opportunity to visit this country, make sure you pack the necessary items you will need. Such items as shaving cream, razor blades, tanning lotion, cosmetics. If you forget these items,trying to purchase them in Cuba will be a difficult task. By and large, Cubans are honest people. Don’t where expensive jewelry or carry around expensive mobile phones, such as Apple IPhones. Exchange your money for Cuban currency at your hotel, airport, or a bank. If anyone approaches you and try to exchange your currency for Cuban currency, you will end up with worthless old Cuban currency not being used.
