Se persigue debilitar el turismo a Cuba

Cuba, sus válvulas de presión y la candela

Cuba, Pressure Valves and Fueling the Flame

Relations between Cuba and the US are quickly returning to what they were during the Cold War. All of the progress made thanks to the dialogue between presidents Barack Obama and Raul Castro is beginning to come crashing down like a tower of cards. Continue reading

Nuevos elementos en el caso de Cuba y armas acústicas

La trama se complica en el caso de las supuestas armas acústicas usadas en Cuba contra diplomáticos estadounidenses y canadienses y sus familiares. Hasta la fecha, toda la información sobre los ataques que afectaría seriamente la salud de más de 20 personas ha sido en base de filtraciones anónimas y declaraciones del gobierno estadounidense sin presentar informes médicos ni nombres de las personas supuestamente afectadas. Continue reading

US Exonerates Cuba of Blame in Sonic Attacks

The White House has ruled out Cuba being responsible for the alleged “sonic attacks” which have supposedly affected 20-some diplomats, based on the assumption that any of this had actually happened. Continue reading

La Aduana de Cuba, ¿que papel debe jugar?

Pensando y leyendo comentarios, tras el paso del huracán Irma, me pregunto si las leyes de aduanas de Cuba se adaptan a las necesidades económicas del país y de sus ciudadanos o si, por el contrario, la dificultan aún más, con restricciones que se contradicen con los intereses de la nación. Continue reading

Cuba Customs and the Country’s Best Interest

Thinking about and reading comments made after Hurricane Irma swept through Cuba, I find myself asking whether Cuban Customs laws adapt to the country and its people’s economic needs or whether they exist instead to make them even more difficult, with restrictions which contradict the nation’s best interests. Continue reading

Precios se disparan en La Habana después del huracán Irma

Cada vez que pasa un huracán encima o cerca de Cuba, la ya difícil situación alimentaria del país empeora considerablemente. Entre los más afectados están los agricultores, que perdieron parte o la totalidad de sus cosechas, y los consumidores que ven los precios subir fuera del alcance de muchos. Continue reading

Will the US Really Close Down its Embassy in Havana?

The US government has said that it is studying the possibility of closing its diplomatic headquarters in Havana as a result of the mysterious “Death ray” device, a sonic weapon which would only exist in Cuba and only leaves North American diplomats deaf. Continue reading

Price Gouging in Havana after Irma

These days I feel like I was living in Europe. I just bought one mango and half green at that, for the equivalent of US $2 at the market at B and 19th Streets in Vedado and street vendors in my neighborhood raised the price of a strand of onions to $8. Continue reading

Falta seriedad en Cuba en su lucha contra la corrupción

El gobierno de Raúl Castro ha proclamado varias veces su batalla contra la corrupción en las diferentes capas de la burocracia de la Isla y en las gerencias de las empresas del Estado. Sin embargo, la falta de transparencia en las gestiones de los líderes y empresarios estatales, y la poca o nula posibilidad de los periodistas de participar en la batalla, hace que la efectividad del esfuerzo anti-corrupción quede muy por debajo su posibilidad. Continue reading

Does Cuba Sink When We Hear the Truth?
