History Is Made As Obama Becomes First US President To Visit Cuba In 90 Years (Photos)

The Obamas’ tour of Old Havana was nearly a washout on Sunday evening as a deluge of rain came down minutes after they landed in Cuba for a historic three-day visit to the communist country. The first family pressed on, despite the stormy skies, strolling through the Plaza des Armas as they huddled under umbrellas and made their way to the Museo de la Ciudad, the museum of Cuba’s capital city, and on to Havana Cathedral.

President Obama’s family – particularly his daughter Sasha – looked less than pleased as they perched underneath their blue and black umbrellas. As the Obama’s taxied towards their motorcade, the president wrote on Twitter: ‘¿Que bolá Cuba? (What’s up Cuba?). Just touched down here, looking forward to meeting and hearing directly from the Cuban people.’
Cuban dictator, Raul Castro did not greet the Obamas on the tarmac, leaving the country’s foreign minister to conduct the greetings and handshakes instead. Castro has a meeting with the U.S. president tomorrow morning, but Obama will not come face-to-face with former leader, Fidel Castro. As he arrived in the country, Obama admitted that Cuba had work to do to correct its poor human rights record, but said: 'Change is going to happen'.
