This year I traveled to Cuba. You know, it’s that little island that’s spitting distance from Florida and should not be visited without special dispensation. I wanted to see it before MacDonald’s arrived. I’m so glad I did. I learned a lot and I met some wonderful people. It seems they like us. Now there’s a change!
I’ll add a short T/F quiz to each post the same as I did last year about Burma, and I’ll post the answers to the questions the following day.
Answers to your T/F Quiz for C
D is for Dry-Feet
Cubans have a special category in American Immigration policy. If they can step onto U.S. land, they can stay and later apply for citizenship. Many Cubans have taken advantage of this policy, even risking dangerous waters and swimming to Guantanamo.
Before going to Cuba I read Swimming to Guantanamo by Jim Ryerson. It was excellent first hand information from the writer who has been to that island so many times he writes from a multi-cultural perspective. I recommend the book to anyone thinking of visiting Cuba.
Your T/F Quiz for D
1. Canada and Mexico have similar immigration agreements with the U.S.
2. There are about 1 million immigrants from Cuba in the U.S. today.
