It was a surprise and much welcomed news just before Christmas that Cuba is no longer an enemy of America. How fast can progress be made and we get to visit Cuba on a train vacation?
It looks like quite a while as the U.S. and Cuba try to settle outstanding issues such as lost property on the American side and damage by the CIA. There seem to be lots of roadblocks in the news analysis.
We can expect something in April - there will be news on our front pages. That's when the Seventh Summit of the Americas happens in Panama and the two presidents will meet face to face.
For now, we Canadians can continue to enjoy inexpensive vacations to the sandy beaches of Cuban resorts or to the hubbub of Havana with its historic architecture.
