Cuban Americans living in downtown Miami's "Little Havana" expressed mixed opinions on Friday over America and Cuba's move to re-establish diplomatic relations.
The neighbourhood is home to a sprawling Cuban community and serves as the cultural and political hub for many exiled Cubans.
"I get a little feel from my parents etc, etc, and from the people you see walking down the streets, and you hear everything, all their comments," said Peter Hernandez, the son of Cuban immigrants.
"Those are people that have deep, deep, deep scars, mentally, physically, from the last 50, 60 years of the failure of Cuban government.," added Hernandez, who owns the 'Los Pinarenos' neighbourhood market
US President Barack Obama has announced a host of initiatives to strengthen ties with Cuba, but the embargo on the country remains.
Cigars brought back to the US must be for personal use, not resale - same as the rules that existed for travellers before August 2004, when the Bush administration imposed strict restrictions those travelling to the island.
Rene Herrera, another Cuban migrant living in Miami, told The Associated Press as he was lighting up a cigar: "We are very depressed because we've been left with our hands tied in front of a situation in which we can't do anything,"
"We don't have an opinion in this country, neither as Cubans nor as US citizens," he added.
