Goodbye Cuba 🇨🇺 ADIOS!
Thank you for showing me all of your beauty and love. You were a destination that I grew up thinking I’d never be able to visit and only dream from afar through pictures! I’m so grateful for the locals hospitality and respect towards me. Although our countries governments do not see eye to eye it doesn’t mean the people have similar separation. 🤝🌎🤝🌎🤝 If anything our bonds are stronger as we both will not let our governments speak on behalf of all of us, push each other away with one sided views from media or take over our actions... allowing us to be a part of the most supportive community: being human! 👫👨👩👧👦 Cuba taught me you can be from any religion, race, economic background and you should still be treated and heard equally! The people here have been through so much but are resilient & stronger than most that I’ve seen in all the countries I’ve been to. Thank you! Gracias! 📍DID YOU KNOW: The United States currently imposes a commercial, economic, and financial embargo against Cuba. Called “el bloqueo” aka “the blockade” the US first imposed an embargo on the sale of arms to Cuba on March 14, 1958 then February 7, 1962 the embargo was extended to include almost all exports! This is due to US criticisms of human rights in Cuba, & holding $6 billion worth of financial claims against the Cuban government. Despite the existence of the embargo, the United States is the fifth-largest exporter to Cuba (6.6% of Cuba's imports come from the US). Cuba must, however, pay cash for all imports, as credit is not allowed. 🇨🇺📸: @Jakenackos
