For the first time in almost 90 years, a sitting US President is visiting Cuba.

It's a big deal. He's there to further untangle the complicated relationship between the two countries and to talk about trade opportunities.

1. Angel Boligan, Cuba/Mexico

2. Patrick Chappatte, Switzerland

3. Kap, Spain
