Re: Cuba ???

There are a number of loopholes now which can be utilized for legal travel - educational, medical, intercultural exchanges, media reporting related, etc. But one has to do the paper work and to put oneself over the radar of US gov't and I'm not sure if the hassle is worth it. My Canadian friends tell me it's like DR but with less crime and cheaper women. Like Venezuela used to be before Chavez.

Also apparently 99% of the citizens caught AND prosecuted are the ones with obvious items in the luggage - cigars, rum, receipts, especially credit card receipts. And I may be wrong but I thought that one cannot spend US dollars over there but don't think the Feds have jurisdiction over any other foreign currency. If anyone knows for sure either way please let us know.
