    I turned down a gig in Cuba because they don't have 4g service. I can't be offline because of my other businesses. They need to get internet mobile savvy.

    Make no mistake…. once the American money comes in it will entrench itself into every aspect of cuban society and the people will see how much they have been missing. The youth wont give a damn about their grandfather's revolution and the govt will slowly lose its power. Then it will either get better with free open elections or we will have decades of civil unrest. With American money and products comes the cia, nsa, fbi, etc…. make no mistake.

    How is an American buying a guys classic car for lets say $100,000 and changing that cubans family for the better a problem? The sale of that old car could pay for that cubans kids college or a new home… Honestly that guy in the vid with the green hat and red start is a jerk.

    like everything else take it slow and in moderation. with the help of the internet keep it in the open. let the people who did not run and stayed in there country decide. and for those who started this mess over fifty years ago hold them accountable. but be careful  because they are some ruthless s.o.b.´s.  but all good things come with the bad. there goes my toilet paper/ used telephone book exports from here in "cali". and i bet the "cohs" and the m. c. puros prices are going up for my gringo importers. thank ceilo the chinos are all ready flooding the market with there knock-off cigars, damn.  \//,
