Is Cuba changing?
I think so. Most of the change benefits the government. More hotel rooms becoming available, better air service to the island, and better food will bring in more tourist dollars to the military. (lest we forget …. military=government).
However, the recent creation of wi-fi hotspots around Havana benefits anyone with a phone or computer. Cubans are now able to purchase pre-paid sim cards (?) for their phones. They use them to video chat with relatives and friends throughout the world. The cards are not cheap, but people find the money somewhere.
Of course, lots of things are still the same.
