Welcome to the Cuba Embargo Zone

Rod-Serling

Imagine if you will, a place celebrated in every media venue--from movies to magazines--as a "U.S. tourist playground!" because it received 263,000 U.S. tourists (in 1957.)

Now imagine if you will, a place described in every media venue as suffering a cruel and vindictive and archaic "blockade" by the U.S.--at a time it welcomes over TWICE the number of visitors from the U.S. as it did in 1957, when--remember--it served as "U.S. tourist playground."

Welcome to the Cuba embargo zone.

Cuba welcomed 327,600 visitors from the U.S. in the first six months of 2014.
