Thanks all for the info.

Sounds like our trip will not happen. What seemed like a great exchange for ideas in water quality issues may have come to an end. From what I'm hearing we are getting no help anymore from our goverment. I'd hoped that Jimmy Carters trip would have made the difference but it may have made things worse.
My biggest fear is when capitalism someday takes over, the Island will be over run with condos and 9 million guide/resorts trying to sell fly fishing trips. Fishing it now must be as close to what fishing must of been in the 50's.
How wonderful it would have been to meet and talk with many Cuban people in Cuba not about politics but of the their physical enviroment and how they relate to it on an everyday basis.
