This is an historic time for Cuba.In recent years the “old” guard has slowly fallen away, as Cuba has begun to take tentative steps onto the international arena.With the days of the Cuban missile crisis long gone, and Fidel’s inward-looking policies wiped from history, Raul Castro has introduced a progressive government keen to loosen control on citizens and benefit from international trade and tourism.So far, the policy seems to have been working well.
