A friend who wants to go to Cuba, and knows I go under the Close Relative rule contacted me tonight and said, "Next time you go to Cuba, I want to go. We can go now, right?"
My answer was that having resumed diplomatic relations does not mean that all separation is suddenly eliminated. The Embargo still exists. We haven't even had a chance to study what this might really mean.
As we reported earlier today, Cuban people in Cuba were jubilant, crying, hugging. We hope they have reason to be so elated.
Yoani Sanchez, famous Cuban Blogger, seems not to be so excited. This is her translated blog of the day on the subject:
"Has D-Day Arrived?"
