Not allowed.
Besides there's only two countries I would want to visit. They both begin with the letter 'I'.

Mass tourism is destroying the planet.

A random Google shows

How do I buy them? Although you will no doubt be approached on the street with an irresistible offer, do not buy cigars from a street vendor. Cuba has outlawed selling cigars on the street and counterfeits of the quality Cuban brands are rampant. (And really, what is the point if you don’t get the authentic experience?) If you are a first-time buyer searching for Cuban cigars in Havana, Cigar Aficionado’s cigar shopper’s paradise, you can find your souvenir cigars in official La Casa del Habano (LCDH; The House of Havanas) locations around the city and cigar shops located in reputable hotels. Here are a few recently recommended places to buy Cuban cigars to get you started.

That is the most sad and pathetic thing I have read this morning. (And I've spent quite of bit of pointless time looking at twitter.)

You can have the Cuban cigar experience anywhere on the planet. There is only one place on Earth that you can have the real Cuban experience and risk being thrown in a Cuban jail, and that is on the streets of Cuba.

I rarely visit any new place without at least once following some gentleman or lady down a side street, often at three o'clock in the morning. I have a homing instinct that others don't have or resist. I give it a free rein. I meet the most interesting people that way.

Where you there? I had totally forgotten about that bar with the dancing ladies. It’s the only time I’ve found a use for a yo-yo.

Even then some students were wearing masks at lectures..

I’ve been to half of the world’s countries that begin with “I”, and of the remaining four only India holds much appeal. One of these days, probably.

You’re complaining about Iran or Iraq?
