And the USA to life their silly embargo (yeah right x 2)

There is a chance the embargo will be lifted. Private businesses have been chomping at the bit to get in there for years. The salty ones are pretty much just Coke, Chiquita, and Bacardi, though they did pretty much own that whole island.

without sounding like i'm rubbing it in, you probably missed out. i spent a few weeks there a couple of years ago. cuba is an awesome place to travel around and surely there's no doubt it's gonna go through massive changes sooner rather than later; so it wont be as fun to visit :)

To Americans, the Cuban role in our culture is now being filled by Venezuela. The only difference is the lack of silly rafts and instant citizenship.

This thread made me think he was dead. He's actually just quitting as president, which he'd effectively done a while back.

Obviously, Fidel's no hero but he beat the capitalists and the fascists.
