One of the first changes to come about as the result of the re-establishment of diplomatic relations with Cuba is that the cost of making phone calls to Cuba has collapsed. It used to be that AT&T routed the calls through Canada and it cost $23 a minute. So calling grandma didn't happen very often. But now ads are following me about the Internet, offering calls for 59 cents a minute. I don't know anyone in Cuba, but for those of you who haven't talked to grandma in awhile, just google "calling cuba" and you'll find a bunch of options.
