Since the embargo has been lifted on Cuba, Americans can now visit the country as a tourist destination. A Christian County couple visited the country recently for educational purposes and they are excited to share what they experienced. Duane and Cindy Stock said one of the first things they noticed was that the country was behind the United States by about 50 years, but that made things interesting when seeing the 1950s cars driving around.

The Stock's mentioned the Cuban agriculture and how different it is compared to agriculture in Illinois and the United States, because for 50 years, they didn't have access to all of the resources the US had to make crops uniform or keep them safe from pests.

Overall, the Stock's said they would take another trip to Cuba in a heartbeat and they loved the experience. Duane and Cindy Stock appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
