Question Trip to Havana?

Just was asked to go to Havana for a week next February.

It would be a tobacco trade relations junket. I'd be a guest, not a negotiator, so I'd go along for the ride. They apparently have a tobacco festival in February, the trip would include some tours of some of the bigger cigar factories, tobacco plantations, etc.

Not sure I want my tourist money going to support a communist dictator but I sure would like to see Cuba. This is the 2nd time I've been asked to go on one of these trips to Havana. I turned down the first trip.

Seriously mixed thoughts.

Watch out for those Sonic Weapons. The Cubes seem to like frying the brains of people they do not like.
