Because I am not Cuban
If communist Cuba was so awful, how come you stayed there for 10 years?
!!!!! It was not awful for me.
I had money, vacations abroad, cars, full access to the grocery stores and restaurants that only operated with US dollars. Also access to tourist hotels that were banned to Cubans, access to the Internet that was banned to Cubans and full access to satellite TV that was banned to Cubans.
And full access to gasoline stations, that were actually banned to Cubans when I arrived. Eventually that changed when Fidel realized he might as well have those dollars that Cubans got from Miami rather than the black market that existed in gas stolen from the government.
And probably most importantly, access to the only acceptable hospital in Havana, which treats the party hierarchy. And that was only because it had the only dialysis machine operating in Cuba.
Not to mention the excitement of geological exploration in a country whose potential had been ignored for thirty years.
During the time the Soviet empire was managing Cuba there was no exploration. The Soviets' only interests in mining were to ransack the already existing nickel deposits.
Which is why Fidel had to enter into partnership with a Canadian company after the Soviets left. Someone had to restore the nickel processing facilities the Soviets had left in ruins.
And of course those fabulous beaches. Of course Cubans were generally kept away from the beaches beside the main resort areas.
