No Visits to Carpe Diem Yet from Cuba

The Internet is a tightly controlled privilege in Cuba, reserved for the trusted elite. Private citizens are prohibited from buying computers or accessing the Internet without special authorization. Access in Cuba is limited to citizens who can prove they are engaged in research or connected to an accredited and approved institution.

And only about 2% of Cubans even have telephones, so Internet access, even if they could acquire a computer, would be almost impossible for the average person in Cuba. I guess they won't be visiting Carpe Diem, or any other blog or website, any time soon (see the map above of visits to Carpe Diem)!

Aprovecha el dia!

The Cuban elite don't know what they're missing. But that's ok, they probably wouldn't want to hear it anyway!

Maybe Michael Moore should address the telephone shortage in Cuba.
