Cuba selfie for the day!

Cuba is the new fad.......never mind NOTHING has changed for the Cuban people. YET this article points out to hurry up and visit Cuba BECAUSE:

"You can find it all in Havana. Going there is like travelling back in time to the 1950s and now is the time to go before the country fully opens up to the rest of the world and commercialism takes over at high speed."

Nevermind the Cuban people have been in a time warp for 57 years, and they haven't had FREEDOM either.........

Top 10 Things to do when you visit Cuba!!!!

The AP and other news outlets are just FOAMING at the mouth, plus they are posting non-stop articles about Americans traveling to Cuba and POOF Cuba will just change automatically.

Since El Cafe Cubano can't compete with the non-stop propaganda from the news outlets, this blog has decided to help those who travel to Cuba with some tips or things TO DO while in Cuba:

Here is a top 10 list:

1) BONUS: When you step off the plane in Havana, make sure you hit the local watering hole for some mojitos, and while toasting, make sure you say REAL LOUD: ME CAGO EN FIDEL


By saying this I am SURE you will be upgraded in your accommodations!

2) Go to your local Hospital or Clinic and get yourself a check up or better yet some surgery. Remember go to the one that are usually reserved for locals, to get that AUTHENTIC local flavor!!!

3) For you Architecture lovers, since Cuba has been unspoiled for 55 years, stay in those Art Deco buildings(the ones you see Crumbling all over)  for the REAL Cuba feeling. Electricity and running water are optional.

4)This is really cool...... Get yourself in a 1953 Ford taxi, feel like your stuck in a time warp, and ENJOY YOURSELF to some Cohibas while touring all the land, buildings, and Houses stolen by the regime. Try to facebook, twitter, and snapchat while doing this....

5) Volunteer at your local political prison while wearing your Che t-shirt

6) You want something REALLY Authentic: Get some rafts, inner tubes, or any floatation device, and at the crack of dawn, take to the water, and for kicks, see how long it takes you to get to Miami!!!

7) While doing the tours, and when you go by the Dictator's compound, wave those huge FOAM fingers, the one with the middle finger extended and say hello this is a salute from Miami.

8) Bring some computers, laptops, cellphones, all types of electronics to the dissidents(make sure you declare this when you get off the plane in Havana!!!!)

9) Bring some extra cash for a smoke a thon with Fidel(depends if he is really alive or not)

10) All these are touristy things, but check out the possibility of opening up a business with the government, they are reliable, and they always PAY!!!

"Cuba: Churches demolished and pastors arrested in latest government crackdown"

Seems like everyone wants too spend "quality time" with the Cuban dictatorship. Hollywood, businesses, Obama,and tourist are lining up and foaming at the mouth to go to Cuba.

yet no one seems to care or mention how the Cuban people are treated:

Click here for the article:

Two churches have been demolished and several church leaders arrested in the latest state crackdown in Cuba.

Both churches were part of the Apostolic Movement which is unregistered by the Cuban government and were destroyed without warning on January 8, according to Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW).
"Just after 4am police and state security agents broke down the door and handcuffed Reverend Bernardo de Quesada Salomon and his wife Damaris, taking them to two separate prisons while the demolition took place," said a statement from the religious freedom charity.
"Damaris was released at around 1pm while Rev de Quesada Salomon was dropped off by state security after 3pm, after the church had been destroyed. Their son was handcuffed and held in the house during the demolition of the open-air structure."

The demolitions follow aborted attempts to destroy an Assemblies of God church in Santiago, Cuba, last November. Officials halted the planned destruction after church members held a sit-in at the church building.
However this time a number of other church leaders in Cuba were "arbitrarily detained or confined to their homes by state security agents," CSW said, "presumably to stop them from going to support the churches being demolished".
Church leaders in Cuba have pointed to the "worrying context" of these latest demolitions. Last year alone, 2,000 churches were declared illegal and over 100 were designated for demolition.
Chief executive of CSW, Mervyn Thomas, said he was deeply concerned by the events and branded the treatment of the two pastors "unacceptable".
"Contrary to the hopes of many that political dialogue with United States and the European Union would lead to more freedom in Cuba, over the past year we have seen a severe regression in terms of freedom of religion or belief and shrinking space for religious groups to operate," he said.
"We call on the EU and the US to make freedom of religion or belief a central component of its dialogues with Cuba and to insist on improvement in this area."

"Missing U.S. Missile Shows Up in Cuba".....a job for inspector Clouseau!

A U.S. Hellfire Missile that was sent to Europe for "training purposes" is somehow in Cuba?

We must get Inspector Clouseau on this case at ONCE, after reading this:

"federal investigators have been tracing the paper trail of the wayward Hellfire to determine if its arrival was the work of criminals, spies, or the result of  a series  of blunders, these people said"
