I was troubled by the extensive air time Obama was given to the exclusion of other world leaders at the Memorial event in Johannesburg. Perhaps that's why the UN General Assembly organized its own special tribute to Mandela so that every country could equally be heard.

After years of U.S. Treasury Department travel restrictions, Cuba has taken on an air of mystery. Our 45-minute charter-flight from Miami and the bus ride into Havana make us feel like astronauts of a sort, touching down for nine days in a parallel world.
