HAVANA (AP) _ One of Cuba's most famous names is returning from
a prolonged global tour, but don't expect well-wishers, flowers or
Most islanders won't even know about it.
When Yoani Sanchez touches down on a flight from Madrid on
Thursday, she will step into an unknown future that could bring the
dissident blogger more influence _ or significantly more trouble _
on this Communist-led island that has never looked kindly on
In several tweets early Wednesday, Sanchez said she was
returning to an island that considers her a public enemy, ``Because
I am stubborn ... for me, life is nowhere but in Cuba.''
Communist authorities allowed Sanchez and several lesser-known
opposition figures to travel as part of landmark migration reforms
that took effect in January.
