Self-employed… Even on Vacation

In January, in the heat of migratory reform, I wrote about the tour packages to nearby destinations like Cancun or Panama prepared for wealthy Cubans, because these trips (and the revived Tour of Cuba as well) were to be paid for in hard currency.

But despite the abundant payments of future Cuban tourists, the plan was shelved; the directors of the Ministry of Tourism decided not to lead the flight of hard currency, since presumably everyone would take hard currency to spend on their off-shore vacations.

The functionaries are a little dull and lacking in imagination, because to get hard currency out of the country, there’s no need to go for a stroll, don’t they see?
