Travel Guide: Cuba, 2017

My full post on my trip to Cuba is now up and dedicated to the Cuban people wherever you are in the world. Going to UM (Go Canes!), I had many Cuban friends and professors, but never fully appreciated their history until I went and saw for myself what life in Havana is like. I’m sure so much will change- when I was there a new announcement on revisions to the 1966 Cuban Adjustment Act, specifically 1995’s “Dry Feet – Wet Feet” policy. My tour guide was immediately excited as she received the phone call of the news while dropping us at our hotel. Her daughter lives in the USA and they haven’t seen each other in over four years despite her attempts to apply multiple times for visas. The lifted embargo will certainly open up opportunities for Cuba, but it will also change a place that is so special because it’s “frozen in time.” I’m no political expert and it’s a very complicated situation, but I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you to those that made my trip so special!
