Following in the footsteps of a Portland doctor, a Los Angeles resident has just returned from a trip to Cuba to challenge the ban on Americans traveling and spending money in the communist Caribbean island.

The Associated Press reports that freelance producer Mytchell Mora is disappointed he wasn't arrested or questioned when he flaunted his Cuban passport stamp and Havana-bought souvenirs in front of U.S. customs officials.

Mora's trip follows a similar one this spring by Dr. Charles Grossman, a 94-year-old Portlander. As reported in WW, Grossman hoped to prompt the Obama administration to lift the U.S. embargo against Cuba. But Grossman also made it through customs without incident.
