Apr 25th 2011 10:36PM Some restrictions are lifted for some. I'm a US citizen who was born in Cuba, I have been allowed to visit my family there, but haven't. While the lifting of the restrictions for "Americans" have gotten a lot on publicity, what has not gotten a lot of publicity is the restrictions ( or as I call it, the punishment for leaving) that the Cuban government still puts on people like me. In order for me to travel to Cuba, the Cuban government (a.k.a Castro brothers) obligated me to have a Cuban passport, that costs $495 and expires in two years, I also need a visa that costs around $300. It seems that I am still a Cuban for some things (that cost money) but not for others (voting). Bunch of corrupt-hypocrites.
