U.S. Embassy Re-opening in Cuba. Which will it be?
July 7, 2015
During my travels to Cuba in June, I was curious about what the all important U.S. Embassy looked like and where it was located. Rather than the Mirimar Area where there are lots of foreign Embassys, the former U.S. Embassy is on the Malecon (Ocean Drive) in Havana.
However, from what I heard at the hair salon, the Swiss Embassy was in residence, so there was talk about taking the top 10 floors of a new build, about a mile or so from the original on the Malecon. From what I saw on the news last night, local Cubans are lining up in front of the former Embassy, so perhaps the Swiss will be taking over the new property. It will be interesting to see the outcome, the next time we've in Havana. Exciting times!
Wonder what you'll missing in Cuba? Hold that thought until 2016.
