Regarding tourists per year, I was referring to general Cuban tourism (I'm guessing mostly Canadian/European). I wasn't referring to US folks going to Cuba.
As for billions of aid, it's been going on for decades, but not widely reported...here's one link I found.
$5B since 2000. Healthcare products had been exported since early 90s. I'm sure if I look hard enough, I can find it going back even further.
Lastly, as for sending money (I never said "freely"), honestly, I encourage you to google it. Personally, I know of it happening quite a bit growing up in the Cuban community. It is widely talked about and done very often. I'm sure there are some difficulties in doing it but it happens.Edited by gumercindo - 12/18/14 at 1:10pm
