From where do you hale?

And if a US Citizen how did you go about entering Cuba?

I'd love to go down there but the convolutions of going via Canada / Mexico make me a bit wary ...

^ lofter, I think he's an agent of the Cuban government. You find such folks on other forums, too.

China also does it. It's a form of spam.

All the better for telling me how to get into Cuba and thus side-step the ridiculous embargo against American citizens visiting one of our closest neighbors ;)

Wouldn't it be something? The general population have only been allowed in the last few years to use computers. Not the internet, mind you, just computers. Click link for video.

The Next Cuban Revolution?

As the winds of change swirled during the Arab Spring over the past year, many began to wonder whether there might be a similar movement in Cuba — a "Cuban Spring."
While visiting Cuba to cover the visit of Pope Benedict, we spent time with students at a University cafeteria, and in speaking with them it was clear that they know they want a better, different life, but they're isolated to what's happening off their shores.
While the internet and social media did not cause the uprising across the Arab world, they were vital as an electronic billboard for the organizers, and also to spread the news of political change. In Cuba, young people lack access to Facebook or Twitter, as private citizens are prohibited from purchasing computers without special authorization from the government.
Would such a uprising shatter the political façade of one of the bastions of communism today? We delve into this complex question.
