What Inspired Me to Visit Cuba?

Cuba to me was a curiosity-so close, yet forbidden. Isolated only by the US and Israel, Cuba looks much like it did 50 years ago. Just recently, Cuba's government has sanctioned new car purchases. Ninety-nine percent of the vehicles you see are vintage 1950's or earlier. Cuba is a haven for '57 Chevys with a few in mint condition.
Cuba is a tropical island loaded with beaches. The crumbling infrastructure along with its buildings, attest to a government who has survived but barely. But things are looking hopeful for this little treasure of a country 90 miles from Florida. First, they believe the US will lift its ban on travel to Cuba. Next, their own government has eased travel restrictions. Third, people can sell their residences. Fourth, entrepreneurship is encouraged. With these changes, along with instituting an income tax, may lead to renewed investment internally and externally.
Was I disappointed in visiting Cuba? Hardly. Cuba is colorful in its music, art and culture. Cuba is our neighbor and should be our friend.
