Obama Arrives in Cuba for Historic Visit

President Barack Obama landed in Cuba on Sunday in the first trip to the island nation by a U.S. president in 88 years. The president and his family were greeted at Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez. Cuban President Raul Castro, who was noticeably absent Sunday, will meet with Obama during a welcoming ceremony at the presidential palace Monday. The three-day trip is part of a greater effort by the U.S. and Cuba to normalize relations after decades of hostility between the two nations.
