A hostile policy more harmful than a hurricane – Via Granma Cuba

#UnBlockCuba

The main obstacle to the development of the Cuban economy’s potential is not related to nature but to an immoral way of doing politics: the economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba.

When a hurricane is identified as a threat to the island, all Cubans begin to worry. Despite measures adopted by our Civil Defense system to protect human life and material resources, it is well known that the powerful winds and rain show no mercy.

Every natural phenomenon that strikes leaves damage that must be repaired as soon as possible. Thus, some plans are put on hold to free resources for the recovery, and the state cannot move forward as fast as it would like.

Damages caused by Hurricane Irma, for example, were estimated at more than  13 billion pesos, mostly to housing, healthcare facilities, schools, agriculture, hotel infrastructure, as well as roads.

  • The figures of the President of the Republic and the Prime Minister return.
  • The Council of State and the National Assembly of People’s Power will have the same address.
  • The Province Assemblies of the Popular Power are eliminated and a Province Government, integrated by the Governor and a Council, is instituted, so that the municipality is strengthened and finally achieves greater autonomy.
  • Likewise, the position of an Intendant is introduced, who shall govern the Board of Directors in the municipalities.

“Our business is down 70 percent,” Havana restaurateur Niuris Higueras told a group of Nationmagazine travelers who were spending their final evening of a weeklong spring tour in Cuba at her renowned eatery, El Atelier. “We may have to reduce staff,” she sadly noted, after a major boom in US-generated business following Barack Obama’s history-making rapprochement with Raúl Castro.

Culinary entrepreneurs such as Higueras, along with other Cuban businesses catering to US tourists, have been hit hard by the sharp shift in relations under the Trump administration. In the first quarter of 2018.

Cuba now holds the world record for the largest Cuba Libre ever crafted after this year’s XXII Pan American Cocktail Rally International Bartenders’ Association (IBA) in Havana Sunday.

Over the course of an hour, spectators gawked as a team of bartenders poured 500 liters of liquor into a ginormous two-meter-high vat erected in the Tryp Habana Libre hotel lobby.

 

A total of 108 bottles of rum, 200 liters of a Cuban “TuKola” drink, and a dash of lemon juice were used to create the cocktail of the century.

VISITING CUBA WITH KIDS – WHY IT MAKES SENSE / Via locally sourced cuba

Related :

Deciding upon a holiday destination that is of equal appeal to both the adults and the kids in your family can be a tricky balancing act. If it’s too much in the children’s favour, you might find yourself spending your precious vacation days at a theme park, your eyes practically glazing over as yet another costumed character capers in front of your kids (and the actor inside probably once had dreams of being on Broadway). Sure, you will take some pleasure in your children’s joy, but the cynic in you will treat it all as an advertisement for all the merchandise on sale in the countless souvenir stores.
