Default RD is off to Cuba..Adios Chica

RD, I hope you, and James have a fabulous time in Cuba....all of us here, will be reading, with delight, and enjoying it vicariously through your reports, and, pictures! We need tons of pictures and tons of adjectives! Look at the cars and remember when....

Interesting tidbit, I just heard on this show, I have on right now....the night before JFK signed the Cuban embargo in 1962, he sent his minions to buy up a lifetime supply of Cuban cigars....I guess the old adage, smoke em if you got em, was important to him!

I hope you and James enjoy the heat! xox

Enjoy your adventure and stay safe.

I wish that I could go along.

Have fun RD and James!!!! I would like to visit Cuba too, but can't due to a long outdated Cold War policy. Of course that is not not likely to change due to political cowardice on both sides who are afraid they will lose a few votes in South Florida.

I will be very interested in RD's comments.

Cuba is on my bucket list and as a Brit, I can go there.

Have a great trip - RD.

Have a great time and enjoy the beaches. I'll be interested in hearing how it was. I know that whenever they lift the travel restrictions for the U.S. the cruise lines will be cruising there about two minutes later.

Take care and have fun,
Mike

I forget that Canadians can actually go on vacation in Cuba...RD and James, have a wonderful time, can't wait to hear how it is. May-be someday we can just fly there and vacation....

I have no desire to go to Cuba .One of my former co-workers from many years ago relocated to Cuba circa 1970.
