Breaking free from the yoke of tyranny in Cuba one mojito at a time
When the Obama administration relaxed Cuba travel restrictions for American citizens nearly four years ago, the reasoning given was to engage in "cultural exchanges" with the Cuban people and help them finally break free of the yoke of tyranny imposed upon them by the Castro dictatorship. Just how those "cultural exchanges" would accomplish that was never really explained, but after these past few years, it has become clear how the White House thinks this will happen: One mojito at a time.
At the Huffington Post, travel writer and guide editor of GuidePal, Tyler Wetherall, aka Our Girl in Havana, gives first-time American visitors to Cuba the where-to-go and what-to-do advice that is sure to bring freedom and liberty to Cuba and end the more than five decades long dictatorship of the Castro regime quicker than you can say"two mojitos, por favor."
In the interest of brevity, I have taken the trouble of giving our readers a brief synopsis of Ms. Wetherall's Cuba itinerary for a two-week, freedom and liberty instilling, culture exchanging, democracy building visit to the communist island of Cuba:
Day 1-3 - Havana: Eat, drink, play, and dance.
Day 4-6 - Trinidad: Drink, swim, hike, and lay out on the beach.
Day 7-8 - Santa Clara: Che hero-worship, drink, party at the nightclubs.
Day 9-13 - Cayo Las Brujas: Lay out on the beach and drink.
There you have it, my friends: the road to freedom for Cubans, one mojito and one drunk apathetic American tourist at a time. Dios nos salve.
