Cubans thrilled by Obama-Castro talks, but see long road

Two women wearing t-shirts with the US flag wall along a street in Havana, Cuba, on April 13, 2015Cubans can still barely believe what they saw: A president named Castro sat down for talks with a “yankee” US leader. The ice-breaking meeting between Cuban leader Raul Castro and US President Barack Obama at the Summit of the Americas in Panama on Saturday was broadcast live on state-run television in the communist-ruled country. Fidel Castro clashed with 10 other US leaders during his decades in power, but his younger 83-year-old brother and Obama stunned the world in December when they announced their intention to bury the Cold War-era hostility. “We never thought that this meeting could be possible, and especially not in such a cordial, frank and respectful manner,” said Jorge Luis Perez, 51, a musician who sings and plays guitar for tourists in Old Havana.
