this is an nbc news special report. here is lester holt. >> a historic day here at the u.s. embassy in havana reopening its doors after 54 years. secretary of state kerry is speaking to a gathering of d digniitaries here. in a few moments the u.s. flag will be raised here. already the secretary noted we are here today because president
obama and president castro in his words made a courageous decision to stop being prisoners of history and focus on the opportunities of today and tomorrow. it was a long and windy road to get here. >> it was indeed and already criticized by at least two republican candidates today and is going to be an issue in this campaign. jeb bush and marco rubio both from florida very critical. this was brokered in part by pope francis who secretary kerry is thanking today. this is secret negotiations that went awry in the '90s. there were problems on both sides, the shooting down of american protesters against fidell castro, their plane and that led to the trade embargo and that has been in place as a matter of law since bill clinton signed it into law. >> there has been pushback and
criticism that cuban dissidents have not been invited to the ceremony. >> a smaller event and one without press coverage. there is criticism of that today. he is acknowledging that this relationship will not heal. his point is that you have diplomatic relations with almost 200 countries including enemies of the united states and that people to people relationships will only improve as will government to government relationships. >> the secretary is nearing the end of his remarks. he will then raise the u.s. flag. he will have with him three former u.s. marines. the marines who were here in 1961 who lowered the flag and made a vow to come back and will be taking part in the ceremony. >> it was lowered on january 3rd. >> what changes now for
americans and cubans? what changes at this stage in cuban-american relations? >> there are promises from internet companies, banks are getting in. you can use credit for the first time and not just cash. there is still travel. if you have a member of church, health group you can easily get a treasury waiver under the embargo. the president has done just about everything he can administratively. the embargo for real trade relations will continue until congress lifts it. >> the streets are filled with cubans and an awful lot of americans who are here, some waving their own american flags throughout the morning in preparation. it is a hot day as every day in august is here as people are standing out to be a part of this historic moment. officially the embassy has been open for several weeks. this is the ceremonial raising of the u.s. flag. we got here a little before
dawn. overnight they put at the actual embassy signage. let's go to secretary kerry. >> with the friendships we have begun to forage. we are certain that the time is now to reach out to one another as two peoples who are no longer enemies or rivals but neighbors. time to unfurl our flags, raise them up and let the world know that we wish each other well.
[ speaking foreign language ] it is with that healing mission in mind that i turn now to larry morris, jim tracy. 54 years ago you gentlemen promised a return to havana and hoist the flag you lowered on that day long ago. today i invite you on behalf of president obama and the american people to fulfill that pledge by presenting the stars and stripes to be raised by members of our current military detachment. larry, jim and mike, this is your cue to deliver on words that would make any diplomat proud just as they would any member of the united states marine corps, promise made, promise kept. thank you. [ applause ]
era in u.s./cuban relations. as we have noted some things won't change. the economic embargo is still in place. that will have to go through congress. still a long road ahead. >> just a personal note, my first trip here was in this very spot and thousands of anti-american protesters were here because of elian gonzalez. it was 1999 and has taken a long time. i think kerry and president obama's bet is that with diplomatic relations it will be easier to open communications. there will be wifi hot spots. with information will come they think more democracy. >> this is the era in the shadow of the light of a political race back in the united states that will have a huge effect really on issues like the embargo cht. >> so far all of the democratic
announced candidates are in favor of this new policy and all of the republicans are against it. you see a real dividing line in the general election campaign. >> a dramatic moment. the u.s. flag now waving over the united states embassy in havana last lowered in 1961, 45 years after the last secretary of state stepped on this soil, secretary kerry with a full day ahead of him. he will be meeting with his cuban counter part here in a short time and greeting cuban citizens at a reception including some cuban dissidents and i think will take time to meet folks on the streets of cuba. we will have a lot more on this coming up tonight. andrea mitchell, thanks very felt like a world away, and i'm always about getting me unplugged and off my phone and we still have wi-fi there but
they were having so much fun. we had this jumpy pillow at this campground, i couldn't get them off, i said "get your phone, i want to take a picture" and they both said they left in the the cabin. i was like yes, score. >> what are the vitals you need to take? camping bags are big. >> sleeping bags are great because you don't want to make beds. >> what's a good kind to get? >> well, there's lots of general ones. i think you want to get the kind the kid is going to like, radiosnigt so if you're young get the pink one for the girl. something fun. >> it's funny to see board games isn't it? people don't play them anymore. >> i swear by them because if you just set up the board game at the picnic table and sit there, you don't have to force anyone to play with you, they come. you set it up, they will come. >> can you stop the bugs from getting to us? what do we use? >> very fashionable bug
repellent bracelets, you can spray up the whole area with this and you want to make sure you have a candle so when you're sitting by a campfire or dinner table or picnic table you'll keep the bugs away. these come in organic forms and i brought you each your own organic mosquito repellent candle. >> do you have to pay something? if you go to a campground? >> yes. you need a permit at the national parks so go to that web site to find out which ones you need. >> what's the general fee? >> anything from $12 to $75 usually. i camped in malibu and it was $75 but i had a spectacular view. >> that's per day? >> that's per day. >> you've got a couple more things? >> this is a wi-fi hot spot. this is good to bring. most campgrounds have wi-fi but in case you don't and you have to have it. i like this because it keeps your wi-fi secure. >> is that expensive? >> you can get used ones for 50 bucks and about $20 a month is what the data will cost you. light. bring light, lanterns.
>> and lastly and most importantly, because we only have a couple seconds, s'mores. >> s'mores. but bring the bling, bring s'mores bling. bring giant marshmallows, pink, green, knnutella, it's really f. >> thank you so much. i love this, back stabbing, cat fight, table tossings. >> just another day in the office for me. >> you'll get it all with the hotwives of las vegas. >> they've come to have fun. don't miss it. >> they are crazy. >> good crazy. >> cray-cray. >> mostly. ng charge of their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar, but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills, and comes in a pen. victoza is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. and the needle is thin. victoza is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight.
victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face, lips, tongue or throat, fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis,
such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans. does all greek yogurt have to be thick? does it all have to be the same? not with new light and fluffy yoplait greek 100 whips! let's whip up the rules of greek!
we all know the drama that goes on between the real housewives, but if you haven't checked out the hotwives, you're missing out. >> we first met the drama queens in orlando and in season two of the hilarious parody show, they're taking over las vegas. >> but when ivanka plans a charity party to impress the
