I’m torn on Cuba. I realize there is lots history there between our two countries, and I understand the embargo (although it is somewhat dated – ala Apartheid in South Africa). I just wish Castro would hurry up and die so we can just annex it and create another state. This stops the immigration, opens up the tobacco fields and creates a new tourist location for Americans.
The story below should be particularly interesting to Randy….and I officially name him Ambassador representing Smokes and Booze in negotiations to gain access into the bar. Also, after the jump is a great vid on how to make a Hemingway Daiquiri -
Small scoop, but on October 6th, the Cuban Interests Section (aka, the Cuban Embassy if we ever get back to normalizing relations) will launch a clever bit of public diplomacy by opening "Hemingway's Bar."
Of course, one has to be invited as the bar is on Cuba's side of the line inside its sort-of-embassy, and my hunch is that some will make the list and others won't. Sorry Ileana (and Mario).
And as commerce can't change hands between Americans and Cubans -- the drinks will be free. I plan to go and will want a "Hemingway Daiquiri" -- double the rum, and no sugar.
