      In order to book a flight to Cuba or lodging in the country now, you must now declare which category of travel you'll be making first, and as Americans still cannot simply book a flight and head to Cuba, most U.S. citizens will have to go through a process to make it to this country—unless they are part of a protected group still permitted to.   The book describes Kissinger as "apoplectic" with Castro — in oval office meetings Kissinger referred to the Cuban leader as a "pipsqueak" — for Cuba's decision to deploy thousands of soldiers to Angola to assist the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) party of António Agostinho Neto against attacks from insurgent groups.

      NEW YORK — “A people aiming to build a society based on solidarity” — that’s what Cuba’s socialist revolution represents, said Enrique Ubieta, author of Red Zone: Cuba and the Battle Against Ebola in West was addressing a March 7 program to celebrate publication of new editions of Red Zone in English and Spanish via video from Havana.   He is the author of the acclaimed book "Cuba: A Revolution in Motion" and is currently putting the final touches on the book "Africa's Children Return! Cuba, the War in Angola and the End of Apartheid." Tags Cuba Africa Angola. Related stories. UN Holds Minute of Silence for : Isaac Saney.

      Sunday live music sessions at Cape to Cuba feature famous South African bans. Walking through the entrance you are welcomed with the smooth sounds of Piet Botha (RIP) and Akkidis, Robin Auid, Tim Parr and friends, Albert Frost, Hezron Chetty, and many more. Book if you can, to secure your ideal table, or show up a little earlier and explore. And though the role of Cuban volunteers in this victory inspired Africans and left internationals everywhere, the details of the story have remained largely hidden and even in Cuba, uncelebrated. Historian Piero Gleijeses' new book, Conflicting Missions: Havana, Washington, and Africa, , recovers this politically far away time.
