To Cuba, of course. The Pope just left, and my child bride and I will soon visit the Communist tropical paradise, quite soon.
It’s looking more and more like we’re going at the ideal moment. Fidel’s brother Raul is now president, and some of the ham-fisted, dreamy-eyed economic policies of the past are crumbling.
To some extent the citizens can now own private property, buy it, sell it, as they see fit. They can better themselves instead of living in the gray, Soviet-like sameness of the past.
A dash of capitalism is improving their lives.
So we will see the old Cuba and the beginnings of the new Cuba. Perfect.
Here’s a five-minute video by Christine Amanpour. Pathetic that one cannot own a computer in Cuba without government permission.*
And it’s so sad that the university students with whom Amanpour spoke were afraid to talk freely.*
Surely, the Pope has already done so, but let us pray to the Goddess that soon anybody who wants to own a computer can do so and that one can speak openly in public, just like you and I do here.
