They called him Cuban Pete, and I predict there will be a small Desi Arnaz revival once we normalize relations with Cuba.
That normalization will start tomorrow, according to AP's Matt Lee:
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will announce Wednesday that the U.S. and Cuba have finalized an agreement to reopen embassies in each other's capitals, a major step in ending hostilities between the Cold War foes, a senior administration official said.
The U.S. and Cuba have been negotiating the reestablishment of embassies following the historic December announcement that they would move to restore ties after a half-century of animosity. The U.S. embassy in Havana is expected to open in July.
Havana is a place I have always wanted to visit but, somehow, in TDYs to 70+ posts, I've never gotten there. This might be my chance at last.
