Quiero Ir a Cuba
I Want to Go to Cuba
Carrie and I were in Mexico back in 2007 and knew that they have daily flights to Cuba. The Cuban passport checkers supposidly know that they aren’t supposed to stamp an American passport and as long as we didn’t use our ATM card or Credit Card, how on Earth could Uncle Sam catch wind of our adventures in the forbidden Latin American country?!
Sometimes, however, a little too much Internet research will get the better of you. It seemed, according to the good ‘ole WWW, that if we got caught that we would be subject to a $50,000+ fine and possible jail time. Did that mean that I couldn’t even post a photo to my Adventures of a GoodMan Facebook wall? I certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable adding Cuba to my Photo Galleries.
In the end, we wound up nixing our holidays to Cuba in favor of some extra time on mainland Central America. However, now that President Obama is getting closer to lifting the embargo, we want to make sure that we’re on that first flight over. Who’s coming with us?!
Have YOU been to Cuba? What was your experience like?
