Talk tonight on Cuba travel

Curious about what today’s vote by Congress to lift the ban on travel between the USA and Cuba might mean? There’s a perfect opportunity to find out if you can get yourself to Walnut Creek, CA, tonight.

I’m honored to consider myself a colleague, and to have the same publisher, as Christopher Baker. Christopher is a travel writer and photographer; author of Moon Handbooks Cuba, Moon Handbooks Havana, Mi Moto Fidel: Motorcycling Through Castro’s Cuba, and the forthcoming National Geographic Traveler Cuba (among other books); and quite simply the foremost authority on travel to Cuba.

Tonight (Thursday, 23 October 2003), he’ll be speaking to the World Affairs Council of Northern California on Cuba Today: Restrictions, Tourism, and Politics. $32 for nonmembers includes reception at 6:30 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m.; students are admitted free to the program at 7:30 p.m.

I know it’s short notice, but be there if you can.

[Addendum: I’m part of a separate discussion at over whether Cuba has jurisdiction over Guantanamo.]

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
