Odds and ends

  • Foreign Minister Perez Roque on the Cuba-Mexico migration agreement, and the prospect of returning Cubans who “try to use Mexico to get to the United States.”

  • AP has an interesting account of a Florida man whose boat was stolen by alien smugglers. He tracked its movement by GPS (to western Cuba, then to Mexico’s Isla Mujeres) and recovered it with the help pf Mexican police.

  • A new Russian Orthodox church was consecrated in Havana; it’s on the Avenida del Puerto, facing the bay. BBC coverage here.

  • “When I am president, we are going to pressure the Cuban government to free their people.” --Senator McCain in Miami last Friday.

  • Miami New Times’ blog on reporters’ conflicting readings of the Cuban American vote this year.
