Default Cuban US relations

I will refrain from political editorial. Suggest no political rhetoric needed.
This does effect you guys in the US though.

I personally love travelling there and cigar culture is fantastic.

No political comment from me, either. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

I’m planning to visit in November on a cruise — I hope that I’ll still be able to do so when the time comes...

A few of us were planning on something sooner. This might be a problem.

I'm waiting on the final rules. One of the questions that I have is if the new rules will ban personally bringing in CCs from a third country or if the rules will be unaffected there.

Over the last decade or so, the laws pertaining to the US and Cuba have changed a lot. It seems to be flux and is often a pawn. At least nothing is set in stone!

Sometimes issues are made political when in reality they are not. Interesting that China would be the largest threat economically and militarily however we use Cuba as a political pawn.

Maybe some day we will do things for the right reason and not have arterial motives behind them...maybe

The right reason and the right reason for someone looking to be elected or re-elected can be at odds.
