Turn Off The News / Juan Juan Almeida

When last week, the official gazette announced special admission permits for those foreigners who buy or rent dwellings in Cuba, several news media outlets, seemingly not very well informed, put together a whole hornet’s nest.

Wow, what a way to let yourself be manipulated.  It’s hard to believe that so many know-it-alls don’t know that since the end of the ’90’s, when the island’s real estate boom became fashionable, the Cuban government already gave the gringos who bought (or rented), temporary residence, renewable annually, and the right to import a car.  Before reporting, take a refresher.
