A historic day for the Cuba-US relations

July 20 was a historic day for Cuba and the USA. After more than 54 years, embassies re-opened. A diplomatic victory for both peoples. Meanwhile, the embargo continues, and the illegal US prison in Guantanamo still holds and tortures people. What would this changes mean to Cubans? Is this the end of the Cuban socialist model?
