The new colonialism

Over the last two weeks I have been right across the country, from southwest to northeast. In the south, they await the ¨tourists¨ -- in the north, I think they really wish they would leave.

Along with the tourists come some of the worst exploitation -- sex trade, gambling, drugs -- the sort of thing that drove Cuba to revolution.

It is a sad thing to see.

Now, when I see a really beautiful place, and think - wow-- how stunning- how beautiful- it would be wonderful if people would come and see this.

But then -- well----- perhaps it is better leaving it just untouched.
