Here in Cuba on a week long holiday – felt like I was caught in a time-warp .. Cuba is home to over 60,000 vehicles still on the road, from the 40s, 50s (Photos: http://bit.ly/103Ms3L) & early 60s as a result of the American embargo against the country enacted in 1962. Everywhere you look, in the cities & on the highways, you’ll see these classic cars rumbling down the roads …. and most are in pristine condition .. they fix them up, take great pride in restoring them & pass them down through their families.

The “Special Period” in Cuba: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_Period
Last year, the United States flag was raised in Cuba for the first time in more than five decades, as diplomatic relations between the two states were unfrozen and the American embassy in Havana reopened.
This dramatic turnaround was preceded by a series of previously unthinkable shifts in policy enacted by the Cuban government, now led by Fidel Castro’s brother, Raul.
The president has been opening up Cuba’s economy since 2010, permitting Cubans to open private businesses and buy and sell property, while foreign companies can now invest in the island nation.
In three reports to be broadcast this month, we look at the reforms that appear to be bringing a return to capitalism ever closer and ask what these changes mean for Cuban citizens and the future of their socialist state.
In part one of Cuba Year Zero, we explore what it means for Cuba’s socialism to make peace with the US government and ask if this decision reflects recognition by the state of a failure to empower its people.

2014 Recap: A Tumultuous Year In Politics | NBC News
I’m going to la Habana, to the biggest city of the Antilles and a place where everything is culture, history, traditions… I want to know everything about Cuba, so i decided to visite my mum’s bookstore: Llibreria Antiquària Gibernau at Aribau street number 24.
In American politics, the Southern strategy refers to a Republican Party strategy of gaining political support for certain candidates in the Southern United States by appealing to racism against African Americans.
Though the “Solid South” had been a longtime Democratic Party stronghold due to the Democratic Party’s defense of slavery before the American Civil War and segregation for a century thereafter, many white Southern Democrats stopped supporting the party following the civil rights plank of the Democratic campaign in 1948 (triggering the Dixiecrats), the African-American Civil Rights Movement, the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and desegregation.
The strategy was first adopted under future Republican President Richard Nixon and Republican Senator Barry Goldwater in the late 1960s. The strategy was successful in winning 5 formerly Confederate states in both the 1964 and 1968 presidential elections. It contributed to the electoral realignment of some Southern states to the Republican Party, but at the expense of losing more than 90 percent of black voters to the Democratic Party. As the twentieth century came to a close, the Republican Party began trying to appeal again to black voters, though with little success.
In 2005, Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman acknowledged the Southern strategy and formally apologized to the NAACP for ignoring the black vote in the previous century.
Tourism in Cuba is an industry that generates over 3 million arrivals per year, and is one of the main sources of revenue for the island. With its favorable climate, beaches, colonial architecture and distinct cultural history, Cuba has long been an attractive destination for tourists. Having been Spain’s last, oldest, and closest colony until 1901, in the first part of the 20th century Cuba continued to benefit from big investments, creation of industries, and immigration. Its proximity and close relation to the United States also helped Cuba’s market economy prosper fairly quickly. As relations between Cuba and the United States deteriorated rapidly after the Cuban Revolution and the resulting expropriation and nationalisation of businesses, the island became cut off from its traditional market by an embargo and a travel ban was imposed on U.S. citizens visiting Cuba. The tourist industry declined to record low levels within two years of Castro’s accession to power. By the mid-1960s the Communist government had banned and eliminated all private property, outlawed the possession of foreign currency, and eliminated the tourist industry all together.
