I thought of publishing my commentary on this article by Kevin Spear posted initially on the Orlando Sentinel on Jul 14, 2019, as I believe it misses some nuances about the country. But, overall, I think it is an accurate depiction of how Cuba (I should say Cubans and in particular Cuban entrepreneurs) are coping with the impact of the most recent Trump administration travel restrictions. I think you to judge for yourself and make your conclusion.
At the end of the article, it clarifies that travel to Cuba from the US remains legal under multiple categories, including Support for the Cuban People. The exchange of ideas amongst our two countries enriches the lives of both Cubans and Americans.
