Change in Cuba

Those who still say that there will be no change in Cuba in at least 10 years should pay attention to the creative ways in which the Cuban economy is being affected by skilled and well-connected entities abroad.

I had a taste of flying by private jet in a well-organized and pricey tour organized by National Geographic and executed by TCS World Travel of Seattle, to a number of Eurasian, Asian and African countries last year.

Those organized trips are being created not for tourism purposes, but for business owners who want to make sure they don’t exhaust time and resources in accessing their business targets. Can you blame the organizers or the participants?

Were these people ever committed to the cause that forced almost 2 million people to leave the island seeking freedom and economic opportunity?
