Boise journalist reports in from Cuba

Reporter Nathaniel Hoffman of the Boise Weekly reports that Idaho’s trade delegation spent Tuesday morning meeting with representatives of Cuba’s state-run import agency to find out what Idaho products they could use, and then called home to see which of those needs Idaho could meet. And that “Cubans make an extra hard effort to pronounce ‘Butch’ without sounding like they are talking about Bush.” He also reported that the Idaho delegation, “dressed largely in sports jackets and polo shirts, left for dinner Tuesday night in their big tour bus,” while “the Boise Weekly correspondent dined on arroz con pollo at a Caribbean dive bar. … The sun set over the deep harbor, leaving Havana basked momentarily in a pink warmth.” Read his first dispatch from Havana here at the Boise Weekly’s website.
