On the night of September 9th the frightening Hurricane Irma discharge all his wrath on Cuba.

The powerful Category 5 hurricane (Catastrophic damage will occur: A high percentage of framed homes will be destroyed, with total roof failure and wall collapse. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last for weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months) with sustained maximum winds of 250 km per hour (185 miles per hour) chose the keys in the north of the island, plagued by excellent beaches and hotels, and swept everything in its wake after destroying the beautiful Caribbean with its paradisiacal landscapes.

Same day, in the morning, when all the forecasts showed that the natural phenomenon was heading towards the island, Trump also unloaded his anger on Cuba by renewing (by 11 time, before him 10 American presidents have renewed it) the Trading with the Enemy Act – statute from 1917 that sustains the blockade:

trump-renueva-ley-de-comercio-con-el-enemigo

Cuba has been devastated by Irma, now it tries to recover from its ravages, an exercise of enviable strength that repeats the Cuban people every time it receives the unconcerned visit of a natural phenomenon, for it counted not only with the support of the Cuban revolutionary government , but also with the support of  some countries and NGO that return to the island all the solidarity that she has given to them.

Cuba is also punished each year by each American president for choosing a different path without bending or accepting pressure.

But Cuba rises again claiming to live as best it seems to push the empire’s boot to one side with the same straight that faces the strike of a hurricane.

Cuban authorities are involved in preventing the devastating effects of meteorological events since the island’s Meteorological Institute confirms that they pose a potential threat to its citizens and property. This includes the country’s own president, who, without noticing risks to his own life, appear at the most risky places before, during and after the passing of the meteor.

From the Original post in CubaSi: NOT ALL THAT GLITTERS IN GOLD, BUT THIS IS A SPECTACULAR ENVIRONMENT

Even though the sea is commonly associated to a big blue, this is not the only color that boasts the splendid underwater nature. The use of avant-garde lighting kits is essential these days in order to restore the original color of imaged objects.

Cuba Educational Travel: People 2 People experience

Cuba People to people

Post by @CubanWindow From the Original  By Danny King / June 27, 2017 – Cuba Educational Travel’s Collin Laverty / Travel Weekly

Run by Collin Laverty, a leading expert on Cuba and U.S.-Cuba relations, Cuba Educational Travel organizes educational exchange programs and people-to-people travel for U.S. citizens and residents to Cuba. We believe our two countries have much to learn from each other and meaningful exchanges that foster dialogue can be highly beneficial to strengthening the artistic, environmental, medical, scientific, and social science communities in the U.S. and Cuba. Most importantly, increased travel and people-to-people contact will strengthen ties between ordinary Americans and – Cubans. http://www.cubaeducationaltravel.com/about.html

The Original post:

Collin Laverty is the president of Cuba Educational Travel, which specializes in arranging exchange programs and people-to-people travel for Americans to Cuba. Laverty has visited the island more than 100 times, and his company has taken more than 12,000 travelers to Cuba since 2013. Laverty spoke with senior editor Danny King.

Q: What is the potential impact of President Trump’s intention to reverse the Obama administration’s decision to allow individual people-to-people travel to Cuba?
