Re: Will USCG fly over Cuba airspace?
Quoted from the old Pravda?
The last trip my brother took down there, he stayed in the house of one of the Cubans. There were no windows in the house, and they only had electricity for a few hours a day. But, they couldn't use it because all of their outlets were burned out and they couldn't get any more. For a bus to take kids to church, they were using an old dump truck that the kids would ride in. It didn't even have working headlights. Almost no one had a working car. The whole yard was fenced to raise pigs to eat and he said the smell was unbelievable most of the time.
Well - I have no idea how long ago your brother went, but the houses we visited and stayed in were very nice. Cubans can now buy and sell their houses, can fix them up as they like and our "Casa particular" (B&B) was very nice.
