A year into a travel reform that went into effect a year ago this week, Cubans are traveling in record numbers. Some have not returned, but there's no sign of the mass exodus that some feared. Dissidents are coming and going and raising their international profiles - and money - but there has been little impact on their limited ability to effect political change back home. (AP)
