Luanne, you certainly don't have to go to Cuba, but you and Jim will allways be welcome in our Palm Coast home.

The same from us as well. So funny that in February when we were in Palm Coast, I told Jim I wished we knew someone there, and now we do.

We found the people very nice . Government is so so . Many Cuba's change
good jobs (by our standards ) for jobs where they can
get gratuities is US dollars (2006) .now USD aren't accepted .

For citizens of the USA, if we go, we are going to get an entirely different view of the country, vs the way visitors from other countries will get. We will be taken to places,and interacting with the citizens of Cuba, in totally different ways. The way the Cuban goverment wants us to. You cannot just go where you want as a tourist, within these programs, religeous, or educational.

When someone tells you no, you can't go there, I think it becomes perhaps more fascinating. Visitors from other countries, are blase, since they have a choice.

I would like to visit Cuba, but only if there were no restrictions.

I have visited quite a few countries, but we allways had the freedom to go wherever we wanted too.
