As I'm getting older and my faculties are not what they once were, sometimes I sit at the computer to write a blog item and I am at a loss.
Then Rafael, a good friend of this blog, makes a comment about Cuba.
That's what I wanted to write about. Thanks for mental push, Rafael.
When I was watching the news last night about Fidel's potential demise, at least that is how most of the Cubans in Miami are seeing this, I thought what would that mean for the DR.
For one thing, the DR gets most of its tourists from Europe and Canada. Though more and more Americans have started coming here, especially to Punta Cana. But what happens if say Fidel is on his last legs. What would this do for those who love the DR and travel here often?
Well, I think the DR would be in for a definite downturn once Cuba opens up. Cuba being 90 miles off the coast of Florida would put it a day trip away for many people in the southern United States.
Right now Cuba is very expensive. But that is due to the embargo imposed by the U.S. Once the place opens up and the Miami Cubans start funneling money there like crazy, then it should get much cheaper.
All I know is that I would definitely head there to check the place out.
The question is, my dear readers, would you?
