President Obama landed in Cuba on Sunday afternoon, the first sitting U.S president to visit the island in 88 years. Obama’s whirlwind visit aims to lock in key aspects of his historic overtures to the socialist-run country, deepening U.S.-Cuba economic relations and sending the message that Raúl Castro’s government must embrace democratic reforms.
Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, have a packed schedule of cultural, political and economic events — as well as some old-fashioned sightseeing.
I am in Cuba to cover the president’s visit, with print, pictures and social media. My Twitter handle is @oknox, but we have built this page to collect my tweeted impressions and news from the trip.
