Our Cuba Visit

Havana, Cuba — sensory overload and so inspiring! I can’t wait to tell you more!

Our View From Iowa

by Jim and Melanie

Between 22-26 October 2015, we were in Cuba under the auspices of People-to-People. Our local jazz station organized the trip with the assistance of a travel agency.

Soon we will post our impressions and photographs of the beautiful people and things we experienced. There is so much to think about. It is all a swirl in our heads now. We look forward to sharing the highlights. One thing for sure, Cuba is complicated. Perhaps that complexity is reflected in this photo of a typical pole in a Havana neighborhood.

    I worked on Cuba policy when I served on President Clinton’s National Security Council staff. Needless to say a handful of hard line regressives in congress and Miami were able to derail our efforts to move toward normalization. I’ll remain convinced until the day that I die that we could have undermined the Castro regime by removing our barriers across a broad front. Nothing could have been more subversive.
