Cuba Photos

I ran across this photography blog today.  Very good photography coupled with a bit of explanation.

It only whets my appetite.

Beyonce and Jay-Z

"Under the Obama administration Cuban-Americans can freely travel to Cuba while all other US citizens need a special license to do so."

It turns out that Beyonce and Jay-Z wangled permission from the Treasury Department for their fifth anniversary celebration by getting a license from OFAC for a "people-to-people cultural visit".

Can I get me one of them?

Flying Behind The Coconut Curtain: Cuba and Havana’s José Martí International Airport

Flying Behind The Coconut Curtain: Cuba and Havana’s José Martí International Airport

This very recent article/blog gives a behind-the-scenes look at Havana's international airport and it's national carrier, Cubana Airlines.  The overall impression is, as the author says, a “Flux Capacitor” time machine experience.

Though the main thrust of the article is the airport and the process of getting there , it begins with a bit of history and lots of good photos of Havana and its environs.
