Here's how On Two Shores described it:
Just yesterday, Yoani and Orlando (Luis Pardo) finally made their way to Washington DC, where Yoani met and posed for a wonderful photo-op in front of the Capitol steps with Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Mario Diaz-Balart, and Joe Garcia. The fact that this meeting took place in such a public fashion was HUGE. This is the first time we have ever seen Ileana and Mario publicly carouse with a fierce advocate for lifting the US embargo. Ileana said about the meeting:
"Our goals remain the same and there is unity in the cause. We disagree on how to reach that goal and it has been that way and will continue."
