    No idea on how this plays out on the ground yet.
    Will have to ask my Cuban family next time we talk.
    Me thinks, for now it will be painless transition, and moderate reforms will continue.
    Raul does have the final say for a few years yet.

    Think of the new guy as a Senior apprentice, who is allowed to run the show, but the Master still has the final say, even if he is having a lie-down after sitting round the pool most of the day.
