While visiting Cuba I certainly did not expect it to be anything other than a country torn at the seams by poverty and a 50 year embargo. As is the case in most of the deprived places I have visited for various reasons in life ( Haiti, Indonesia, Brazil, Dominican Republic, etc). Outside of the small areas that are clearly defined for tourists, the rest of the country is EXTREMELY poor.

I was in Varadero, which had a lovely unspoiled beach, yet was indeed poor and stuck in Bautista mode. I did NOT see anything like this video appearing today. I sincerely hope that these places, which have a wealth of natural beauty, can actually be improved to the point where the ENTIRE population of the country can prosper.

PANAMA requires “REAL” western developers to take advantage of regional positivity.

OP ED: James “JB” Bryson- I certainly have much to critique about the way things are done in my adopted home here. I still feel that despite the “boon” we see in Panama City, there lies a 3rd world underbelly we can’t seem to shake. With every “Four Seasons” or …
