Marilyn Berg, left, from Seattle Wash., Cubans Ivet Mendoza, center, and Janeisy Jimenez, talk at a workshop where they make multicolored beads of glass, ceramic, wood, stone and plastic into necklaces and other jewelry.

When Marilyn Berg visited Cuba last year with her Beads of Hope program, then U.S. Interests Section Chief Vicky Huddleston invited her to stay at her official residence. Visiting the island again in late April, Berg said officials at the American mission in Havana asked her what she was doing here, reflecting a new official attitude toward the so-called people to people exchanges that American government encouraged in the past.
