40. I have been there many times
Posted by plurality--> ".. but my best friend just spent two weeks there this summer, and his report is that in the cities you would be propostioned from block to block, that it was quite a common occurance."

Well, if you're looking.. one can find the 'right' blocks to find prostitutes anywhere in the world, Cuba too. Its a common occurrence, globally.

" Also read the articles I posted the link to. They are a first hand report of an American woman who spent a year in Cuba searching for her father. During her time she was forced into prostitution out of neccesity.."

I read your links to a story written by a Cuban "exile". It reads like typical Miamicuban "exile" propaganda. Did you wonder how or why a naturalized US citizen journalist would be "forced" to work as a prostitute (for a story)? Did this foreign based journalist apply for, and get, a legal work visa in Cuba?.. maybe that's why she couldn't get a legal job. She could have returned to the US freely, but, in a nutshell, she, as a journalist, chose to "work" as a prostitute for a completely biased and anti Cuba story.

What is interesting about the story, is that it points out the hypocrisy of US policy.. ex Cubans, "exiles", Cuban-Americans and their family CAN go to Cuba unhindered by the US government, while US citizens of NON Cuban descent are denied our full travel rights, like second class citizens.
