Alabama Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) recently traveled to Cuba as part of a congressional delegation to learn more about the Cuban government, visit with the Cuban people, and discuss everything from the economy to education to trade.

Rep. Byrne shared his experiences from the trip with the Alabama political blog Yellowhammer.

In the article Rep. Byrne writes about his meetings with the Cuban Foreign Minister and his staff, port officials, officials from the catholic church, small business owners, scholars, medical students, and many others.

“At each stop, it became clear that Cuba is a beautiful country full of remarkable people,” wrote Rep. Byrne. “I believe there is legitimate potential for strong ties between our two countries. Unfortunately, they have a long way to go to achieve their legitimate desire to participate in the world economy.”
