Cuba in the news

Would we be interested if it wasn’t for Castro and our own supposed “inability” to travel there? Maybe, but maybe not. Either way, Cuba has come up twice in my RSS reader today which has got me thinking about a place that used to be so close to home.

This first story, Castro’s Tip: Clinton-Obama the winning ticket, is just interesting because, well it’s just interesting. I’m still not sure who I will vote for for President, but I have mentioned previously my prediction that Obama is no longer a front-runner. Vice-President, however, is a definite possibility.

The above article is a Reuters article about an editorial that Castro wrote in Granma, Cuba’s Communist Party newspaper. One has to speculate whether someone is writing this stuff, however, just to make it seem as if he is either alive or capable of writing an editorial.

This second link, Cuba photos, is more fascinating than the first (save the best for last I guess). It’s a series of photos actually taken from Cuba very recently. There are pictures of many buildings and historical sites, some pictures that depict scenes you’ve probably seen in movies, some cars, and of course some anti-Bush propaganda.

Either article, it’s interesting to occassionally think about a close but yet so distant neighbor. I don’t know about you, but those pictures make me want to be able to check out Havana, perhaps someday…
