On May 30th Yoani Sanchez, a world-famous blogger, returned home to Cuba after a three-month tour of South and North America and Europe.
On her trip, Sanchez gave speeches criticizing President Raul Castro’s Communist-led government. She also met with human rights activists and foreign lawmakers and cultivated relationships with journalists at leading Western newspapers.
She said, “It has been a marvelous trip. A trip that is going to change my life in many ways … and I have returned with lots of projects.” After resting with her family, she plans to say more about her future plans.
Previously she had said a main goal of the trip was to prepare herself to launch an independent online newspaper in Cuba.
