‘Cuba was the opposite of everything I imagined’

Most reviews are glowing - painting a picture of a time-capsule.

Barack Obama’s visit to Cuba in March 2015 was historic, marking the end to decades of hostility between the two nations.

Just five months later, in August, the first commercial flight left American soil for Havana, opening the island to mass tourism.

It’s become one of the world’s hottest destinations, with many rushing to visit before McDonald’s and Starbucks appear on every corner.

Most reviews are glowing – painting a picture of a time-capsule with excellent food, cheap drinks, beautiful beaches, lively culture and friendly locals.

OK, infrastructure is lacking and there’s hardly any internet, but so what?

For Tahsir Ahsan, it became a very big deal.

The 24-year-old travel agent recently visited Havana, penning an article called: “Cuba is actually a terrible place to go”, news.com.au reported.

He planned a spontaneous trip with two friends, and thought he’d check out the city for a few days, but he ended up bailing almost immediately.

“We were there exactly 27 hours, we got there at 4pm from Miami, and left at 7pm the next day,” he admitted to news.com.au.

“I knew there would be no internet, and to be honest I wasn’t even looking for internet. The only reason I needed it was because so many of our plans started failing.”

First, their bags never made it to Cuba, and not one of the people they asked at the airport knew where the baggage office was.

When they were trying to find a representative from their airline, they noticed a group of people were trapped in a glass lift, banging on the door.

“I quickly ran up to the desk and informed them that I thought people were stuck in the elevator to which the lady just responded, ‘Yes.’ I chose to fight my own battle,” he wrote.

Second, they booked a non-existent AirBnB.

When they told the taxi dispatcher the address, she said it didn’t exist, and when they called the number attached to the booking, the phone had been disconnected.

“Myself and my friends, we took about US$600 dollars ($861) each for two or three days. We weren’t able to use credit cards or ATMs, but other people told us that should be enough,” he said.

“When our AirBnB fell through, the hotel was $600 a night. Eventually we found a casa particular (a private home that rents rooms) for $45 a night, but then we had baggage issues. The airline said we should just buy what we needed and they’d reimburse us, but we were worried about running out of money.

“That’s why we left so quickly, we needed to get somewhere we could use our cards.”

Ahsan first became interested in visiting Cuba when he heard it described as a “time-warp”. However, the reality was more decrepit than romantic.

“The roads are just terrible, they’re crumbling. The pollution is terrible because the cars are so old, and it just smelled like a gas station.

“I expected it to be lively, in that there’s a lot of culture. Throughout the day, most of it seemed more like just another city. Everyone was just going about their business.”

The hosts at the casa particular gave tips on what to eat and where to go.

“Everyone was really friendly, I wasn’t expecting that. We were told Cuba is a country that kind of oppresses their people, but everyone was extremely friendly and they didn’t hassle us or anything like that. They were all willing to help.”

However, food was another tremendous disappointment.

The walk-up restaurant his hosts recommended was tiny, and the line was so massive they couldn’t see what food was being served.

“It turns out it was hot dogs!” he laughed. He and his friends opted to pass, and ended up wandering around until they stumbled on a hotel restaurant.

“At 11 o’clock at night, not much was open, so we ate there. They had burgers, spaghetti, pizza – they didn’t have any Cuban dishes, just international cuisine,” he said.

His friend ordered spaghetti, but the sauce was so bad it was inedible. Keen to avoid the same experience, Ahsan ended up eating plain white noodles.

The next morning, they were keen to have a totally different experience.

However, their accommodation was fully-booked, so they had to find a new place to stay.

A quick survey of nearby hotels and casas particulares revealed every single room in the area was also sold out.

“It was a comedy of errors,” he said.

“It kind of goes to show that Cuba itself has been blockaded by the US for the past 50 or 60 years, but they’ve been open to everyone else for years.”

He and his friends made an executive decision to bail, booking tickets that afternoon for Cancun in Mexico. It’s a well-developed tourist hot spot, often considered to be an equivalent to Bali in terms of beaches, cuisine and partying.

Ahsan said he wouldn’t rule out a return trip to Cuba, but in lieu of basic infrastructure such as internet, he’d be much more organised.

“Six of my friends were actually in Cuba at the same time, but I couldn’t organise to meet up with them unless we were online at the same time.

“Don’t try to go there and wing it, because it’s not that kind of country. I’d probably go back later, with someone who’s gone a lot of times so I could experience it differently.”

South Korea and Cuba need to realize full potential: Foreign Minister

SEOUL, June 7 (Yonhap) — South Korea and Cuba should work together to fully realize their potential, Seoul’s top diplomat said Tuesday upon returning from a trip to the Caribbean nation.

Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se visited Havana on Saturday for a two-day stay during which he attended a summit of the Association of Caribbean States and held bilateral talks with his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodriguez.

Yun was the first South Korean foreign minister to visit Cuba, one of few countries with which the Asian nation has yet to establish diplomatic relations.

“I stressed (during the foreign ministerial talks) that we need to make various efforts to further realize the potential between our two countries,” he told reporters upon arriving at Incheon International Airport, west of Seoul. “(We) will go in that direction.”

Yun’s visit was symbolic of Seoul’s push to normalize ties with Havana, a staunch ally of communist North Korea.

“We held meaningful talks,” Yun said of his meeting with Rodriguez. “It was a first step, but I plan to strengthen our efforts for the development of bilateral ties through various follow-up talks and by increasing (bilateral) exchanges.”

Barack Obama vai ser nos próximos dias o assunto principal em cada esquina de Havana, com exceção do “paredão dos cretinos”, o mural que Cuba reservou aos presidentes dos Estados Unidos antes de que ganhassem popularidade na ilha comunista.

Visita quase obrigatória dos turistas, o Museu da Revolução, que exalta os atos guerrilheiros protagonizados pelos irmãos Castro, exibe em seu primeiro andar um mural dos anti-heróis.

Ronald Reagan é um ‘caubói’, George Bush pai um imperador romano e seu filho George W. Bush usa um capacete nazista do qual saem orelhas de burro.

Estão representados todos os ex-presidentes de Estados Unidos, mas, principalmente os “cretinos”, que teriam ajudado a “fortalecer e consolidar a Revolução” “tornar irrevogável o socialismo”, segundo as placas escritas em inglês, francês e espanhol.

Nove cubanos morrem e 18 são resgatados no mar perto da Flórida

Grupo foi encontrado próximo à ilha Marco 22 dias após deixar Cuba.
Resgatados por navio, emigrantes serão desembarcados no México.

Um grupo de 18 emigrantes cubanos resgatados nesta sexta-feira (18) de uma precária balsa por um navio de cruzeiro próximo à costa da Flórida afirmou que nove de seus companheiros morreram durante a travessia, informou a Guarda Costeira americana.

Os 18 cubanos, que apresentavam “severa desidratação” quando foram resgatados por um navio da empresa Royal Caribbean, disseram que “nove dos imigrantes morreram no mar durante a viagem”.

A balsa foi recuperada pelo barco próximo à ilha Marco, na Flórida, 22 dias depois de ter saído de Cuba em uma tentativa de chegar à costa norte-americana, segundo as autoridades.

“Nossas mais profundas condolências às famílias destas nove pessoas que recentemente perderam suas vidas”, declarou o capitão Mark Gordon da Guarda Costeira.

“Infelizmente, as tragédias são muito comuns quando balsas artesanais se lançam ao mar sem equipamentos de navegação e salvamento”, declarou.

O grupo de 18 emigrantes será desembarcado em Cozumel, México, que é o próximo porto no qual o navio Briilliance of the Seas atracará.

As autoridades americanas registraram uma escalada do número de balseiros cubanos desde que Estados Unidos e Cuba iniciaram um processo para normalizar as relações, em dezembro de 2014, o que levou os cubanos a temer que possam perder os benefícios migratórios dos quais gozam se alcançam solo americano.

Washington reiterou que não há planos de modificar as leis migratórias.
