I still plan to visit Cuba at the beginning of next year and I kind of feel/hope none of this shit affects me since I have a British passport which I travel with anyhow, but I wonder what is the case for Americans who want to visit while the situation remains as it is or as it was before these new sanctions.
I plan to go to Cuba this Winter and do not think my trip will be affected by America's jingoistic nonsense. There seems to be a clampdown of free lance travel but people who are a part of an organized tour will not be affected. Since I am old and need all the help I can get, I will go the cruise ship route which will circle the island and make various landings. There about a dozen to choose from.
America still has a hair across her ass re Cuba because of the Bay of Pigs and many Cuban ex patriots in, mostly, Florida.
This business about injuries due to sonic devices I do not feel has been conclusively proven. I read a piece that claimed that the alleged injuries cannot be accomplished by sound waves. Further, why would Cuba place one of her primary sources of income, tourism, in danger? They may be heartless foaming at the mouth Commies but they are not stupid.
