Re: “Havana great time — You can get there from here,” June 1 Travel story.
Writer Joy Tipping wrote a light and airy article about her travels to
Cuba. My brother Alan Gross also traveled to Cuba four times on behalf
of our government to bring in cellphones and computers to Cuba’s small
Jewish community. On his fifth trip in December 2009, he was arrested
and is now languishing in a Cuban jail cell (bringalanhome.org).
He would agree that the Cuban people are warm and wonderful. He would
agree that the music is great and the art bright and cheerful. But
beware, if you drive in Cuba and have an accident, you would most likely
be thrown in jail. If you express political thoughts, you will be thrown
in jail. If you are Cuban and attempt to travel to the U.S., you will
most definitely be thrown in jail.
Is this a place you would like to visit and support?
