Please post the article. I would have to see the data or article on that. I live in Florida
, one of my best friends is a cuban imigrant. My insight into the cuban community as a whole is they hate Castro and do everything they can to support the embargo. The ex-pats in particular absolutely support the embargo and push politically to keep it in place.
I would be interested to see your data. I have been in many a heated discussion with ex-pat friends that will argue the embargo should absolutely stay in place until there is a political change in Cuba. They are totally 100% impassioned about it every time the topic comes up.
FYI: I do not support the embargo that is why I keep getting in these conversations... I do support my friends though.
As for sailing there: It is all about risk and reward. I wouldn't sail off the Somali coast right now, and with all the other places to see, I can wait to see Cuba.
