    so i want to go to cuba for spring break, or whatever i want to sit on a beach and smoke a nice havana and drink mojitos, i want to take pictures of people dancing, and children playing. i want to go to cuba. but the government wont let me. so im looking around for alternatives to the law and stumble upon blatant state propaganda..

    now i know this isnt me being subversive but there is so much inflammatory bullshit in this one paper that it makes me want to throw up...
    people from cuba living in the US can only visit once a year on humanitarian reasons, so if there mom is dying of fucking parkinsons they can only see her once a fucking year. FUCK YOU.
    little things, count how many times pickpockets is said, theres pickpockets everywhere.
    oh yeah and those two civilian planes shot over cuba... ummm why were those never on CNN why are us planes flying in cubas air space. and why the fuck do we have a military prison that would put auschwitz to shame on an island we cannot visit.
    rant over.

    You can fly in from another country. Or take a boat?
    I want to go also. It''ll be nice when Castro is gone and it's open to tourism from America. All those Floridian Flatlanders can go visit some mountains after only a 30 minute plane ride. The northeastern coast might have some good point breaks also.

    might have. cuba has some beautiful breaks, its part of the reason i want to go. i know you can fly from mexico after visiting the cuban embassy there and you are cool, the americans think youve been in mexico the whole time. no passport needed.
    castro is the only thing keeping that country from being taken over by americans the last thing a place so beautiful and rich in culture needs.

    I never thought of that way. You're probably right. There's no McDonalds there and it should probably stay that way.

    word, my parents and I were supposed to go visit Cuba this summer. We were gonna go legally to visit my family over there. Theres soo much bullshit involved if you are trying to go legally and we realized we didnt plan far enough ahead of time so we were only to make it as far as Florida. I've heard of either flying in from Mexico or Canada. Did you see the Cuba feature in that special edition Graphotism? It's pretty interesting, it talks about the Nike campaign and shows some "graf." Anyway, we are still planing on going, just dont know when;)

    That thing is nonsense, I have a friend that went to Cuba and had no trouble. Some rich guy offered her like 3000 dollars for her laptop, cause Cuba is stuck in the 1950's due to the embargo. All you have to do is fly/drive to an airport in Canada/Mexico and fly from there to Havana. A travel agent will do it for you, you just have to keep it hush hush.

    Good day...
     
  9. How ironic, i'm drinking havana club rum as i type....i can go to cuba..i just wanna go there before castro dies and the whole place turns to disneyland

    Havana has some seriously cool architecture...its all that crazy cool 50s retro shit that has decayed for decades. being a huge fan of urban decay and appreciating its beauty i would love to go there..but i guess ill have to settle for the old parts of downtown Los Angeles.

    $500,000 fine and years of federal prison if your american citizen that goes to Cubva because it violates the Association with the Enemy Act of 1917 that is the act that the cuban trade and transportation embargoe operates under which is true homie, so dont go there. Puerto Rico is better anyway. I guarantee it.

    Im not sure now is the best time to go. I was gonna
    go 'cause i wanna see it before castro is out, then
    while thinking about it, it seemed as though the
    moment of good opportunity came and went.
    Waiting a while might be a good idea.
