I am well aware there probably are. I was just clarifying what this new policy allows. I do think between popular demand, the interest by the travel industry in it, the new policy, political support in congress(house and senate), and the state of the economy being what it is, open and free travel and trade to Cuba should happen no later than the end of 2011. The United States cannot restore it's economy without international trade, and the places companies will most quickly trade with are going to be ones with low import tariffs and the ones they have to spend the least money and time shipping between.

In short: Free Trade and Free Travel to and from Cuba Makes Absolute Sense.

If only the political powers in both countries would get off their ass and make it happen. After all, Cuba survives on Tourism, and the United States has more potential tourists than most European countries combined.
