I am an American married to a Cuban. We had been living together in San Francisco, CA for a few years and, in June when we learned that Cubans could now own their own businesses, we decided to take a chance and move to Havana to start a cafe bar. We arrived in November. My husband and I live in the Vedado neighborhood with my brother-in-law and have just opened a cafe on Calle N. Our plan and my life is a Cuban fusion. I am the canary in the coal mine here as things begin to open up- the optimistic (read naive) American voice in a land of people who have been hoping for change for so long that their optimism has worn thin.
