Warming up in Cuba

I am beyond gratified that our relations with Cuba may warm up sufficiently to enable travel and trade.

I love their sugar--easy to obtain in Amsterdam; don't smoke cigars and have had and have friends and colleagues on either side of the issue, but boycotting Cuba has always troubled me.

Back in my malaria vaccine related days, a few Cuban representatives came to ask about a potential collaboration (malaria is still endemic world-wide) and diplomatic channels did not prevail.

No collaboration.

Not very helpful for international public health I said.

No one listened.
