Another positive report how the Miami Cuban community is feeling about normalizing relations between Cuba and the USA.

Katty Kay devoted a large segment of her show tonight, BBC World News America, talking about how south Florida would now like to see Cuba and America bury the hatchet and allow Americans to legally travel to Cuba.

Three cheers for Katty Kay.

"Calling all net savvy companies"

I have a good feeling that after the upcoming mid-term elections the travel restrictions are going to be lifted. Regardless of the outcome all sides are now in favor of reconciliation. It could happen as early as the spring of 2015. When that happens I'll begin operating my travel program to Cuba. It's going to be fun and I want in.

I have everything in place but the internet. That's why I'm looking to partner with a net savvy company that can handle the tech.

"I believe it's time to start planning ahead"

Last Saturday, Jan 26, the Huffington Post opined that with the pending confirmations of both John Kerry for Secty of State and Chuck Hagel for Secty of Defense we could shortly see the end of the divisive trade embargo between the USA and Cuba.

The thousands of you who have been faithfully reading this blog for the last 5 years are well aware that I have successfully managed high quality leisure travel programs since 1971. You are also aware that I have been patiently waiting since 1994 for this embargo to end so that I might legally introduce happy American vacationers to all the unique and majestic wonders of Cuba.

I now believe that that time is near.

When it is legal to do so I am hoping to put together a program that will offer an 8 day/7 night package, air included, accommodations at either a 4 star or 5 star Varadero all-inclusive beach front resort, with a 2 day over-night option to Havana. All for less than $1500 p/p double occupancy. This is what, with your help, I'm shooting for.

If something like this interests you then sign on to my mailing list at A fat mailing list gives me leverage.

When it's legal to do so I will then notify you of what I was able to put together and you can then decide if you would like to travel with me to what, for us Americans, is the last virgin destination in the world.

Go. Sign up at You'll be glad you did.

Especially if I pull your name out of the hat and you win the trip for free.

"Another important step forward."

Today the Cuban government announced that the much despised exit visa requirement for most Cubans as of January 14, 2013 will no longer be enforced.

Can you see that door of freedom opening just a little bit wider?

What do you think? Will 2013 be the year that Cubans and Americans will be free to enjoy each others cultures and treasures?

One can only hope and pray.

"President Raul Castro open to talks with USA"

Well it's about time. President Castro has declared that Cuba is willing to mend fences with the USA and wants to sit down to discuss anything and everything, as long as it's a conversation between equals.

That puts the ball in the USA home court. Nothing will happen before the November elections but should President Obama win re-election than I expect, God willing, an ending to this ridiculous embargo by the USA towards Cuba and her long suffering people.

My 98 year old mother often says that "a kettle watched never boils" so thankfully we have the Olympics as a distraction and time-filler until the elections. She also has another favorite saying "Man plans and God laughs" so who knows what the future holds. Definitely not I. But one can hope...and pray.
