Modern Cuba
Modern Cuba

In many ways Cuba hasn’t changed since Fidel Castro and his revolutionaries took control of the country in 1959. A visit to the island that sits 90 miles from Florida is like stepping back in time.  But the recent removal of travel restrictions for U.S. citizens and Raul Castro’s un-tightening of business ownership rules is bringing change. Thomson visited Havana in January of this year and will share his photos and insights from the Cuban people he met there.  He will also provide tips for people interested in visiting Cuba.
