Obama’s former chief of staff on 10-day Cuba trip

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is in Cuba this week, traveling with his family under new, relaxed tourism rules put in place for all U.S. citizens since President Barack Obama announced a thaw in tensions between the nations a year ago.

Emanuel, Obama’s former chief of staff, departed Chicago on Friday for what will be a 10-day trip.

Despite the new era, U.S. citizens can’t just go to Cuba to spend the entire time loafing on a beach or wandering around the island on a whim.
