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 discourse.net over whether Cuba has jurisdiction over Guantanamo.]Link | Posted by Edward on Thursday, 23 October 2003, 14:03 ( 2:03 PM)
