That title was pure click bait. I don’t know the truth about Cuba any more than you do. But, I do think the blockade and other isolationist policies the U.S. has imposed are some of the stupidest and most arcane in existence, and that’s an extremely high bar.
Cuba is awesome. Havana is a beautiful city, even in a state of extreme disrepair. The people are great; educated, artistic, handsome, friendly, etc. And they really know how to party.
I know what you’re thinking. Did I really violate the blockade and the Helms Burton Act, risking prison time and egregious fines just to visit Cuba in person?
Hell no! I just found these photos on the intertubes. But enjoy!
