Cuba and the US have finally restored diplomatic relations. The Cuban flag was raised in Washington, D.C. to symbolize the reopening of the Cuban embassy after more than 50 years. Many American citizens took selfies at the Cuban embassy while holding up their passports to commemorate the occasion. The United States and Cuba broke ties in 1961 and have had a seedy relationship since the split. Slowly but surely, the past decade has shown growth in Cuban-American relations. While they haven’t uploaded any photos of themselves vacationing or sharing holidays with the in-laws, they finally got around to un-blocking each other Twitter and the Gram. They have now finally changed their Facebook status to being in a relationship, and all the loving tourist selfies are buttering up Cubans and Americans alike on social media. Wedding bells aren’t in the cards yet, though. Both countries are still disputing over economic reparations, trade embargoes, and human rights issues. For now, though, let’s just celebrate with a good Cuban cigar and a nice tumbler of rum. !Viva el amor!
