The US$ isn't worth a lot these days and especially since last October is continuing to lose it's value at a rapid pace. Cuba is just following the example of most Asian and Middle East investment banks in getting rid of their US$ holdings I guess.

It may not be worth much. But even people that hate us have their hand out and want more. And we have to turn people away. Some countries have to guard their borders to keep their people in. :sign0089:

Yes American business' are not allowed to do bussiness in cuba and vice versa.
American Citizen's can still travel to cuba but the state department makes it clear that if you get into trouble dont expect much help from the government.

it's travel at your own risk.
