Many Minnesotans have been to Cuba on religious visas, because not only Catholics but also Jews, Episcopalians, Quakers, and others have communities there. It's a great way to meet ordinary Cubans up close and personal and to see how people live. I came back thinking, "It's not as bad as the right-wingers say, but it's not as good as the left-wingers say." But it's fascinating to be in a place that isn't quite frozen in the 1950s but has no phone or Internet contact with the U.S., no fast food, and very little in the way of internationally known products. The food is blaah, but the music, the art, and the people are wonderful.
