    ...the first time in the '60s and the last in '93. Thank gawd I wasn't there to see jinoterismo flourishing. A sad state of affairs.

      You were there right at the start of the Special Period. I've heard lots of stories about that time. A friend who went then was picked up by a government car, not allowed into certain area, etc. She was just a historian. But not many Americans went there at the time.
