Odds and ends

  • El Nuevo Herald: In a session with Latino reporters (transcript not available), President Obama says it’s time for Cuba to release USAID operative Alan Gross.

  • Here’s a new on-line restaurant/paladar guide, “A la mesa,” that covers Havana and the surrounding area.

  • Juventud Rebelde runs an interactive map of the island with a little information about each province, and pop-up provincial maps that show each municipality. On a heavier note, also in Juventud Rebelde, an avocado grown in Camaguey weighs in at 4 lb. 6 oz.

  • More on the prospect of residential real estate sales and the changes they would bring to Havana from Nick Miroff at NPR and Global Post.
